Course content

The Exeter MPA takes an international perspective to equip you with the skills and understanding you need to operate effectively in an increasingly global and constantly changing environment. You will have the opportunity to benefit from the latest ideas on public policy, administration and regulation while learning alongside practitioners working in a variety of roles and organisations from the UK and overseas.

The MPA is relevant whether you are working in local, regional, or central government, or for a charity or public-private partnership. It addresses some of the key issues facing the public sector such as effective leadership, financial crisis management, anticipating and responding to change, performance management, governance and ethical practice, risk and decision-making and sustainability.

The MPA is run by the Department of Politics with expertise from senior civil servants and leading financial consultants. It draws on the work of academics who have an impressive reputation for research and whose ideas are published around the world. We have a long history of working with ministries and national governments, and members of our team have advised organisations such as the United Nations, World Bank, European Commission, the Department of Work and Pensions, the OECD and the Treasury
