MPA Student Profile

We’re facing unprecedented sustainability and social justice challenges—and opportunities. If you want to address these issues from within the public sector, our online Master of Public Administration (MPA) degree is a perfect choice.

We believe that solutions to these intractable problems are best achieved when everyone contributes. That’s why we strive to ensure that the academic and community experiences we deliver are inclusive and accessible.

We approach our academic philosophy and our admissions process from the same perspective. To maximize opportunities for our students to learn from one another, we build diverse cohorts that bring together people from a broad array of backgrounds, professional experiences, geographies, and career aspirations to facilitate peer-to-peer learning and collaboration.

In our admissions process, you’re more than a number. We aim to admit students who come with at least two years of work experience to best benefit from the courses and conversations. We also look closely at the goals you are seeking to achieve and explore how we can mutually benefit from your admission to our MPA program. Ultimately, those who join us are intrinsically motivated to take what they learn in our classrooms and use their knowledge and skills to tackle big, important challenges such as social justice and the climate crisis, working through the public sector to find and build lasting solutions.

Here’s a look at our current student profile.
