  • Course description
    The Master of Public Administration (MPA) is the professional degree for people who want to enter public service at the management level. The academic focus is on developing analytical, conceptual and practical competencies that are common to Strayer University’s Master of Business Administration degree, but emphasizing the public perspective of administration.

    Public Administration degrees prepare students to manage and direct public organizations and governmental offices. Public administration graduates work for local, state, and federal governments, non-profit organizations, non-governmental organizations, trade associations, political parties, and consulting firms.
