Programme Overview

Enhancing skills, advancing careers

The Master of Public Administration (MPA) is an interdisciplinary two-year degree covering the global field of public policy and administration. 

A two-year programme with a big emphasis on real world experience.


What differentiates the MPA from other one year masters is the applied nature of the programme.

MPA graduates are equipped with the knowledge and skills base essential for a successful career in the public, non-profit, and private sectors. Only a two-year degree can offer this depth of study and the combination of methodological discipline and practical application. The illustration below depicts an example student journey.
