Course summary

The MPA is a two-year graduate degree. The degree places a special emphasis on rigorous empirical training, particularly in economics, econometrics and political science. In the second year of your MPA, you will practically apply these skills via the MPA Capstone, a six month consultancy project which sees you working with an external client organisation.

This challenging programme produces well-rounded professionals who make an immediate impact for employers in the public sector, private companies, non-governmental and inter-governmental organisations around the world, including government departments and agencies, consultancies and international development agencies.
