The MPA is the premier degree for those that wish to manage government agencies and nonprofits, and for those in the private sector that wish to specialize in intergovernmental relations, philanthropy, and regulatory affairs. Our program offers a diverse array of concentrations and specializations and tracks, including public management, nonprofit management, urban governance, and public policy. Our program accepts students with a diverse set of undergraduate majors, and it can be completed in either full or part-time status.
The purpose of the MPP program is to prepare students to analyze and evaluate information in order to address complex policy issues. Graduates from MPP programs are sought after analysts and leaders because of their ability to evaluate and synthesize large quantitative datasets using a variety of statistical tools coupled with an in-depth understanding of the institutional, social, economic and political context in which policy solutions are implemented.
