Program Information

Executive Master of Public Administration

The executive master of public administration (EMPA) is offered to students interested in a thorough understanding of the processes and practices associated with the management of public sector organizations at the federal, state and urban levels of government. It will introduce you to the relevant set of knowledge and skills required to function effectively in a managerial or executive role within such organizations. Unlike the traditional MPA which includes a core of common classes and an emphasis program to prepare the student for work in a specific focus area of their choice, the executive MPA assumes that you already have developed competence within a specific functional area. It provides in-depth exposure to the critical areas of executive and managerial focus common to middle and upper level management in all public organizations.
