About

The Innovation, Public Policy and Public Value MPA from University College London (UCL), teaches the competencies, capabilities and leadership skills needed for purpose-driven organisations - in public, private and civil sectors - to confront the grand challenges of the 21st century.

Overview

As a graduate of the Innovation, Public Policy and Public Value programme from University College London (UCL), you will help organisations refocus themselves to become mission-led, driven by public purpose, and able to welcome and manage the explorative and risk-taking processes that structural change, innovation and socio-economic transformation require. 

Key to this process is a rethinking of public and societal value: how to create it, how to nurture it (within organisations) and how to evaluate it. 

Dissertation/report

The MPA culminates in individual project work (60 credits). The project is a written work of substantial analysis of a management, policy or program problem for an external organisation (typically a public organisation). The project is prepared either in consultation with or during placement in an external organisation and an academic supervisor in the Institute for Innovation and Public Purpose.

Placement

For the final project, students have the option to go on a placement, during term 3 organised by the Institute for Innovation and Public Purpose.

Careers

The programme is aimed at teaching the competencies, capabilities and leadership skills needed for purpose-driven organisations in all sectors -- public, private and civil organisations. 

Employability

Graduates from the MPA will possess a unique skill set in public policy, organisational and institutional innovation, new models of innovation policy (mission-oriented innovation), and strategic design and digital transformation of public services. 

Many public sector organisations, policy think tanks and other policy analysis organisations, NGOs and increasingly also large private organisations are looking for employees who are well versed and skilled in new ways of justifying, evaluating and implementing public policies. Graduates will have strong analytical and leadership skills.
