The Master of Public Administration program (MPA) at Marist College prepares innovative leaders of public and nonprofit organizations with the knowledge, skills, and values necessary for effectively managing in a diverse, technologically engaged and global society.
The MPA program’s commitment to excellence in education is demonstrated through the integration of public administration theories with the practice of management in the public and non-profit sectors. Delivered with the assistance of distinctive teaching methods and technologies, courses investigate various perspectives through an integrated curriculum.
Students acquire insight into important content areas of public administration, law, human resources, policy, management and ethics.
The MPA program emphasizes effective communication, quantitative and qualitative analysis, data-driven decision making, and the use of technology to enhance the leadership in, and management of, public organizations.
MPA students learn to motivate themselves and others, and encourage creativity while leading groups through organizational change. Courses, grounded in practice, foster critical thinking, problem solving, innovation, and strategic management.
