Course content

The Innovation, Public Policy and Public Value MPA teaches the competencies, capabilities and leadership skills needed for purpose-driven organisations - in public, private and civil sectors - to confront the grand challenges of the 21st century.

Tackling grand challenges, ranging from climate change to health care for aging populations, requires organisations to be fully equipped to co-create markets together and to understand the opportunities for technological, organisational and social innovations. Our MPA programme provides a state of the art curriculum and policy toolkit for shaping this dynamic world.

Studying this globally unique programme, you will gather an in-depth understanding of the economics of innovation, technological, social and institutional innovations, and cutting-edge thinking around public administration and governance, strategic design and digital transformation. A cross-cutting theme throughout the programme is new economic thinking needed for tackling key 21st century challenges.

You will help organisations overcome the following challenges: how can we create and articulate a sense of shared public purpose; how can we manage complex accountabilities and relationships with multiple stakeholders; how can we lead long-term change in organisations and systems; and how to mobilise people within and outside organisation to engage with the need for change.
