Course content

UCL's School of Public Policy and NYU Wagner have created a unique partnership to offer the first truly joint degree designed for international civil servants. The robust blend of theoretical and applied policy analysis and management studies is intended to provide a distinctive edge enabling public service leaders to function with many actors in a global environment to devise and implement strategies for change.

The Global Public Policy and Management Executive MPA is an innovative world-class programme. Unlike many public policy and management programmes which remain focused on the domestic environment, this Executive MPA promotes internationalisation of the curriculum, student body and locations.

The combination of policy and management change skills and exposure to the world of practice, will provide a substantial and pedagogically distinctive experience.

The programme fosters a strong community and provides learning opportunities beyond the traditional classroom. These cohort-based events include tailored orientation sessions, a dedicated lecture series with inspiring leaders in public service, advisory sessions, and departmental activities. Students also benefit from a strong alumni network across NYU Wagner and UCL.
