Students in the one-year, STEM-designated MPA-EPM program gain the skills they need to become highly accomplished policymakers and professionals in market economies. The course of study applies the theoretical rigor of the social sciences to the practical lessons of economics and management science through the intensive study of actual economic policy successes and failures.
Who It's For
The MPA-EPM is best suited for mid-career professionals and policymakers with at least 3 years of work experience in economic decision-making at institutions such as central banks, finance ministries, national and international development agencies, and international financial institutions. Professionals from financial, consulting and energy backgrounds are also encouraged to apply.
Students graduating with an MPA-EPM STEM-designated degree acquire skills to advance their career and work in leadership, management, and research positions in the public, private, and nonprofit sectors. Recent employers include the World Bank, Bank of England, People’s Bank of China, Inter-American Development Bank, and Deloitte Financial Advisory Services, to name a few. With a STEM degree, students enter the job market with a nationally-recognized designation, and it allows international students to apply for an additional 24 months of OPT after their first year of standard OPT.
