The most recognized degree in the public service field, a Master of Public Administration (MPA) increases not only your value within an organization, but the value you bring to society as a whole. An MPA from California Baptist University prepares leaders in local, state and federal government agencies, as well as non-profit organizations in the quest to better serve the diverse needs of society. An MPA prepares you to become an effective leader, equipped with the practical knowledge and skills to affect positive change.
Uniquely interdisciplinary, CBU’s MPA program balances core competencies critical to becoming a successful leader, with a worldview designed to broaden your perspective of public service. Covering the key areas of finance, leadership, technology, public policy and political processes, MPA courses also develop essential skills in critical thinking, decision making, team development and human resource management. MPA graduates come away from the program with a thorough grasp of the history and theory of public administration, as well as the ability to put those theories into practice to improve operations in the organizations they serve and shape.
