The MPA program at the Graduate School of Government and Business is two-and-a-half-year professional graduate degree designated to prepare students for the challenges of leadership and management in the public sector.
Learning Problem-solving Skills
The MPA program is designed to produce graduates who have the skills needed to be successful and take on leadership roles within a changing society. Our graduates leave with strong problem-solving skills and a sound interdisciplinary context, which allows them to hit the ground running as they enter their new careers.
Unlike a theory-based or research degree, the MPA degree has an applied focus that teaches students to address society's complex problems from an interdisciplinary perspective. Thus, students are taught by faculty members with backgrounds in political science, finance, human resource management, public management, urban policy, and other significant public administration areas.
