The MPP is the most versatile professional degree for students entering the nonprofit and government sectors. The MPP prepares students for careers in the fields of local government and nonprofit management, public and nonprofit financial management, criminal justice or school administration, and natural resource management.
The Graduate Institute of Public Policy is dedicated to ensuring students hands-on career training throughout their studies.
Students also receive career guidance throughout their studies, with particular emphasis placed on career placement during the final year of study. As a degree requirement, we will help you develop a portfolio that not only summarizes your studies, but also can be used to market the professional skills you have obtained from the program. These career development opportunities ensure our students better management skills, understanding of the political environment, leadership potential, and overall work performance than employees with other professional degrees.
Students are also encouraged to visit the local career services office to learn more about career development workshops, on-campus interviews and career fairs.
