Course content

UCL School of Public Policy\'s MPA programme offers an applied, problem-based approach, blending new theoretical developments and practice, with a view to managing public policies domestically and overseas. The MPA aims to provide participants with the practical tools and the academic knowledge that public policy managers need to implement effectively and successfully achieve their agendas.

The programme addresses the needs of policy implementation and administration leaders who require management theories but at the same time have to consider the specificities of each of the public, private, and non-profit sectors.

This MPA will deliver the essential knowledge and skills managers require in order to think creatively and to innovate in an ever more complex and constantly evolving multi-actor environment.

Programme participants will discover an excellent forum to assess their managerial skills and administration competencies with a view to improving their performance at work.
