Our MPA students, and alumni, receive intensive training in administration, economics and quantitative analysis. No two students are the same; CIPA’s flexible curriculum gives them the option to specialize in any of the following eight concentrations:
- Economic and financial policy
- Environmental policy
- Government, politics and policy studies
- Human rights and social justice
- International development studies
- Public and nonprofit management
- Science, technology and infrastructure policy
- Social policy
You can expect that our students will have a solid foundation in the fundamentals and special expertise in the areas where you need a professional understanding of the issues. That is why they do so well in the job market, as our annual employment reports show.
