About the MPA

The two-year Master of Public Administration (MPA) programme is ideal for current and future government advisers, policy-makers and policy analysts from around the world. Our training is both wide-ranging and in-depth and includes, among other areas, economics and econometrics, political science, international development and welfare policy. Around 80 per cent of our students come from overseas, creating a truly international network of peers that endures long after graduation.

Policy streams:
◾ Public and Economic Policy
◾ Public Policy and Management
◾ International Development
◾ European Public and Economic Policy
◾ Public and Social Policy

In the second year of the programme, you will undertake a capstone project where you work in a group of three to five to research, analyse and make recommendations to resolve a genuine policy problem for a real-life client organisation.

You will also benefit from a range of Skills Development Seminars which will complement the formal teaching and learning of the programme. In addition, regular Policy in Practice Seminars bring distinguished professionals to LSE to share their experiences and to help you connect your classroom learning to the real world.

The MPA produces graduates who make far-reaching and significant contributions in the policy arena in the public and private sectors, and in non-governmental organisations including careers in impact investing, policy monitoring and evaluation, policy design, social impact investing, political transparency, financial regulation and economic analysis.

MPA Dual Degree

What is the Master of European Politics and Policies all about?  

Looking for a career in the ever-growing field of European public administration and European organisations? The advanced MSc in European Politics and Policies (MEPP) programme is your foot in the door.

This programme combines academic excellence in the comparative study of public sector structures, policy-making and administration within Europe, with a concern for the practical challenges professionals in policy, administrative and consultative functions face at the sub-state, state and EU level. MEPP has an explicit European and comparative orientation, which includes the study of institutions, decision-making and policies of the European Union on the one hand, and the analysis of convergence and divergence of public sector problems and solutions in European Countries on the other hand. 

Structure

This one-year, postgraduate programme has an explicit European and comparative orientation, which includes the study of institutions, decision-making and policies of the European Union on the one hand, and the analysis of convergence and divergence of public sector problems and solutions in European countries on the other. In promoting comparative approaches, MEPP not only seeks to strengthen cognitive capacities and analytical skills, but also to foster an open-minded attitude to diversity.

Interactive courses in small groups

Experience our excellent research-based education in a small and international student group, providing you all the opportunities for a rich learning experience. A specific focus is placed on the use of case studies; the emphasis is placed on how problems can be solved. Moreover, each class involves a considerable amount of self-study and assignments that are meant to help you assimilate the information presented quickly and effectively. Added value is created by giving attention to the practical challenges of professionals in policy, administrative and consultative functions.

An explicit European Policy and Public Administration programme

A strong core of compulsory courses acquaints you with the comparative study of public policies, administration and management in different member states and on the political dynamics of European integration itself. The rich variety of electives enables you to explore particular interests. You will gain necessary research skills, culminating in a dissertation.

  • As a researcher, you will be able to analyse problems, specific to the public sector, with respect to its social and political context. Throughout the programme you will acquire the necessary skills for PhD research in political science and public administration.
  • As a Political/Policy Analyst, you will be able to independently analyse, evaluate and formulate suggestions on the basis of results of scientific research and theoretical insight on policy problems and developments. You will be trained as present-day or future practitioners in political, administrative or consultative functions in the public sector in Europe.

Career paths

This intensive, one-year MEPP experience is an ideal beginning to a career in European policy. Our graduates go on to pursue any number of interesting careers. They work in a wide variety of public service fields, at all levels of government (federal, local or regional) and in European and international institutions or interest groups. Graduates also find careers in non-governmental organisations, pressure groups and the private sector. The MEPP programme can also be considered as a preparation for PhD research in political science and public administration.

Combining interdisciplinary study with a result-oriented approach, the MIA programme prepares graduates for a world in which leaders and professionals must increasingly be able to work across borders, disciplines and sectors.

Curriculum

The MIA programme is based on a rigorous interdisciplinary curriculum that integrates the diverse perspectives constitutive of Economics, Political Science, Business Administration, and Law.

The programme includes an attractive array of independent electives and contextual studies. Writing a Master’s thesis enables you to concentrate on a research question of your own choice. The MIA is particularly strong in the fields of trade and development, peace and security, as well as democracy and governance. The curriculum skilfully merges St. Gallen’s renowned expertise in economics and business with the analytical study of practical issues pertaining to politics and society as a whole. Linking theory to practice is a top priority in the MIA programme. There are several ways of bringing theoretical analysis to bear on the solution of distinctly practical problems. Our students participate in projects with experts from international organisations such as the European Central Bank or the World Trade Organization (WTO). They may earn credits towards their final degree through internships in companies and in public institutions. The University of St. Gallen has a long-standing commitment to provide its students with a rigorous practical training so as to facilitate their smooth transition from university to professional life as much as possible.

Our faculty, which is a mix of academics and professionals from the luxury industry, is the ideal setup to obtain this objective.
