Critical thinking is a key component of public administration training. The prevalence of “signals and noises” requires navigating through ambiguity and maintaining a healthy skepticism while linking relevant data to pinpoint core issues and solutions across various topics meaningfully. I use my tri-sector experiences within the field of sustainability and ESG to provide a practitioner-driven pedagogical experience. Moreover, students should not just gain technical and conceptual skills, but also an awareness of how to be more competitive in the labor market. In addition, I have worked extensively with students regarding their career development and interests.
