Masters in Public Administration

Course Description


The Master of Public Administration programme provides professional development for those already working in the broad field of public services management, or those wishing to develop a career in that area. The MPA programme is particularly relevant for those individuals involved in the delivery and management of services, both within central government and on the ground.
The programme focuses on the organisational and governmental context within which public services are delivered, and the skills required for successful administration of public service programmes. The programme will promote shared learning across sectors (public, private, non-profit), within an international context.
In the summer term, all course participants are required to complete a policy report supported through personal supervision and a support workshop.
