Master of Public Administration (MPA)

Nick Tallent is a student within the Master of Public Administration program. Nick is currently working as a Business Analyst at the Office of the Registrar. His desire is to become a Double Dawg, since obtaining a BBA in Management from the University in 2015. Upon graduation, Nick went to work for a large transportation & logistics company headquartered in Atlanta. During his tenure with that organization he traveled throughout the country performing efficiency studies for several fortune 500 companies. Nick would present his analysis to their executives and provide examples of cost-effective solutions. Having the opportunity to return to Athens and work for his alma mater was very meaningful, so in 2018 he transitioned into his new role within Higher Education. Since then, he has participated in several key projects and presented solutions to multiple Offices across campus. In the future, Nick plans to utilize his degree and the knowledge gained from the Master of Public Administration program to further his career at the University of Georgia.
