The Master of Public Administration (MPA) in Global Comparative Public Administration (GCPA) educates a new generation of global public administrators and is targeted towards both working professionals and recent undergraduates seeking to develop administrative and analytical skills with a global comparative perspective.
The two-year, 39 credit (either in-class or online) program prepares graduates for public service careers and leadership positions in state, national, and international governments and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs).
The master’s degree has an applied, practitioner orientation consistent with professional public administration programs.

- Work to resolve global inequity
- Learn the complex, interdependent network among nation-states and supranational organizations
- Develop new and alternative strategies for improving public institutions worldwide
