ONLINE MASTER OF PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION
Program Objective: To help you become a more knowledgeable, forward-thinking professional.
Program Description: Unlike other online MPA programs that focus almost exclusively on the public sector management, our curriculum integrates private sector and business approaches using a unique combination of public administration and business courses to help you improve your executive administration, management, organizational, and financial skills and take your career to the next level. For students interested in Emergency Management and Homeland Security careers, we offer a 9-credit concentration with courses in leadership, cybersecurity and the role of intelligence.
Through practical coursework, you will learn to:
- Analyze public policy formulation, interactions, implications and avenues of impact
- Identify, analyze, evaluate and implement research-based public administration practices
- Demonstrate ethical leadership and management skills
- Apply principles of finance to public and nonprofit operations
- Formulate and implement new or expanded government/nonprofit services and programs, and consolidate/eliminate underperforming or obsolete programs and services
Program Outcomes: Upon graduation, you will receive a Master’s degree and be prepared to make a real and immediate difference in your organization.
My Post online experience has been fantastic. From students to faculty, they’re not going to let you fail. They’re always there to help you out.
I am grateful to have been a part of Post’s Honors Program. The small class sizes and culturally enriched trips opens students up to a different side of learning.
I knew the second I got accepted that I wanted to attend Post. It was a great four years. I put a lot into my time there and I got a lot in return.
Going to school online and being in the military was a challenge, but I really appreciate all the faculty and staff here at Post University. They really helped me get through being a distant learning student.
