Description The Master of Public Administration (MPA) program is designed to prepare students for careers in public administration and policy work in such diverse areas as NGOs, industry associations, and, of course, the public service. MPA students are exposed to core concepts in policy formation and analysis and have the opportunity to explore such substantive areas as social policy, health policy, innovation policy, trade and immigration policy, resource and environmental policy, and public-sector management. This combination of theory, application, and research ensures that our graduates are well prepared to: Engage in basic and applied policy research, develop strategic planning, leadership and management skills, draft policy papers and decision documents, work with governments and advocacy groups to identify and promote specific policy measures, and participate in and lead teams of individuals or groups seeking to examine problems, identify issues, promote solutions, and evaluate and assess outcomes of policy measures.
