MPPM - Master of Public Policy and Management (Executive Degree Program)

Format: Campus

Program Description:

The participation of working professionals has always been an important ingredient in GSPIA's academic culture. The MPPM degree recognizes that individuals who are accomplished professionals have needs that are different from those of the pre-professional, and gives credit for a level of managerial knowledge and administrative skills that less experienced students do not possess. The program has been designed with the needsof busy working professionals in mind. The curriculum is flexible, and can be tailored to individual interests or needs. Special consideration is given to facilitate the advising and registration process for students who work during the day. The MPPM degree consists of ten courses, for a total of 30 credit hours. Four components make up the curriculum: (1) foundation seminar; (2) specialized area of study; (3) elective courses; and (4) policy seminar.
