If you aspire to be a future leader and manager of a public, private or non-profit organization, the Master of Science in Public Policy and Management (MSPPM) degree will help you achieve this goal. If you have a passion for academic, political, and social issues, are well rounded, and have an inherent propensity for questioning the status quo, you're an excellent candidate for the MSPPM program.
While most public policy graduate programs focus on theory, we offer a skills-based curriculum. Due to an evolving workforce, we want you to graduate from our program with a skill set that will allow you to shape a flexible career now and 20 years from now.
No other place brings together information technology, leadership development, quantitative policy analysis, and communication skills like Carnegie Mellon. Our innovative curriculum equips students with a data-driven approach to solving problems and the ability to work in multidisciplinary teams.
Additionally, because the future of any organization is affected by technology, you'll graduate with a better understanding of current trends in information technology that can help you tackle complex policy issues, giving you a competitive advantage in the job market.
Students gain the technical and analytical skills necessary for change, the communication skills to create clear and persuasive content and presentations, and the leadership skills to inspire their colleagues and to bring out the best in their co-workers.
