Rudy de Leon Dinglas, Public Policy student (pictured 2nd from right), participated in the annual NASPAA-Batten Student Simulation Competition held at George Mason University this weekend. Similar competitions were held simultaneously at different sites throughout the world.
It's a day-long event that allows graduate students in public policy and related fields to employ their knowledge in a realistic simulated situation, honing skills in critical thinking, negotiation, and leadership.
Unanimously nominated by his team to be the City Manager, Rudy led his team through several iterations of the simulation, ultimately drafting a high-level memo and presenting their recommendations during the competition.
Rudy and his team won FIRST PLACE and holds the highest simulation score globally for this year!
