About

The MPA Public Administration and Management programme in the Department of Political Science at the University College London (UCL) offers an applied, problem-based approach, blending new theoretical developments and practice, with a view to managing public policies domestically and overseas.

Overview

The MPA Public Administration and Management programme in the Department of Political Science at the University College London (UCL) aims to provide participants with the practical tools and the academic knowledge that public policy managers need to implement effectively and successfully achieve their agendas.

Why study this degree at UCL?

The programme addresses the needs of policy implementation and administration leaders who require management theories but at the same time have to consider the specificities of each of the public, private, and non-profit sectors.

This MPA will deliver the essential knowledge and skills managers require in order to think creatively and to innovate in an ever more complex and constantly evolving multi-actor environment.

Programme participants will discover an excellent forum to assess their managerial skills and administration competencies with a view to improving their performance at work.

Careers

On completion of the MPA, participants will be able to develop their careers further within public, private, or non-profit leading organisations. They will be equipped with the knowledge and the capabilities to take positions of responsibility, administrating and implementing different aspects of public policies.

Employability

The MPA will develop key management skills in administrating and implementing public policies. Students will acquire critical abilities to analyse public policies; they will also develop their leadership capacity and gain understanding of how different institutional arrangements can be used to deliver public services. They will also be exposed to a series of cases to advance their strategic decision-making skills.
