The MPA bridges theory and practice, enabling students to acquire the skills and understanding needed for effective management and strategy in government. The programme is delivered in a highly motivated international learning environment.
The Finance pathway enables managers in the public sector and not-for-profit sector to update and improve their understanding of financial and economic management.
The Masters in Public Administration (Finance) programme at University of Birmingham is particularly designed for those working in finance ministries, finance sections within sectoral ministries, development banks, local government, public enterprises, aid providers, non-governmental organisations, and research and training organisations who wish to participate at a strategic level in financial management decisions.
