The MPA program prepares individuals to serve as managers in the executive arm of local, state/provincial, and federal/national government, and increasingly in non-governmental organizations (NGO) and nonprofits.  In addition, those with an MPA education are increasingly called to work in large national and multi-national organizations and in the healthcare industry.  The degree focuses on the systematic investigation of executive organization and management. Instruction includes a focus on the role, development and principles of the field of public administration, public policy making, public policy management and its implementation and assessment in our society today.
