Public Management and Leadership - Master of Public Administration (MPA)

Return to: Master of Public Administration (MPA)  

With unprecedented fiscal challenges and rising performance expectations facing public and nonprofit institutions, managers must be prepared to apply core business principles to improve the efficiencies and effectiveness of their organizations. In this specialization, students will apply a systems perspective as they develop strategies for organizational change in the public organization of their choice. They will discover how transformative change occurs in complex public systems, and will learn to use the language of leadership to motivate, inspire, and competently lead their organizations and shape public policy.
