Executive Master of Public Administration (EMPA) Curriculum

The Executive MPA (EMPA) curriculum is designed to strengthen students' analytical and management skills and deepen their policy knowledge, making them more effective in their chosen careers. Students enrolled in the Executive MPA program may complete the degree in two or three years of study, depending on the course load they wish to carry. All students complete a set of core courses and choose between five concentrations.

The program requires students to complete 54 points, up to 9 of which are granted for professional and management work experience, and 45 are earned during the program of study. Upon approval of their academic advisor, students may transfer a total of two courses (6 points) from outside EMPA course offerings toward graduation requirements.
