Master of Public Administration

You’re looking for a different kind of Master of Public Administration degree that helps you develop your practical skillset and get ahead in your career. While many other online MPA degree programs focus almost exclusively on the public sector, Post has integrated its MBA with its MPA degree program to create a valuable, innovative academic experience that enhances your executive administration skills so you can make a real difference in your organization while you learn.

By blending graduate-level public administration and business courses, our MPA curriculum develops your management, organizational and financial skills to help you advance in the nonprofit sector. The decision-making strategies and planning techniques you’ll learn can help you lead and manage change within established public sector organizations and startups alike. 

In our Master of Public Administration program, you’ll:

  • Discover how local, regional, national, and global trends may affect and shape government agencies, public sector programs, and nonprofit organizations

  • Take courses with other motivated professionals 

  • Learn from our faculty of experienced professionals who bring their practical knowledge to the classroom

  • Earn your degree completely online in an accelerated program format

Note: The Post University MPA program is not a licensure program.  As licensure is a professional process, it is up to each student to fully understand the licensure process, as it varies from state to state and area of specialization.  The faculty and staff in the MPA program are here to support and advise students on program requirements, but it is ultimately the responsibility of individual student to be in charge of his/her own licensure process and to make sure that all requirements are met in obtaining licensure.  Post University does not speak on behalf of any licensing board or body.

Students in the Master of Public Administration degree program are molded into future policy makers, public administrators, and public managers through coursework that trains them in critical decision-making skills. The program includes a unique combination of business courses offered through the Malcolm Baldrige School of Business's online MBA degree program, and public administration courses.  Graduates will be prepared for a variety of careers in federal, state, and local government administrative and management positions. 

Graduates may also seek employment in the non-profit sector, in private or non-governmental organizations.  Specific positions include budget and policy analyst, program manager, city and county manager, chief administrative officer, and program evaluator.
