    Peter Mosher, MIPA

    "The La Follette School gives me the flexibility to take the courses I find most relevant. French coursework has helped me communicate with my partner in the Congo DPR, while a human resources class at the Wisconsin School of Business gave me an introduction on how to effectively manage an organization’s human capital."

Alumni Profiles

    At the moment, I am in the midst of three vastly different and exciting research projects. I am looking at pharmaceutical corporate charitable giving, executive compensation, and income sources for those living on and off Native American tribal lands.
