Is MPM Right For Me?
The Master of Public Management (MPM) is a part-time degree program that is ideal for experienced professionals seeking to invigorate their decision-making skill sets and advance their careers while having the flexibility to stay on the job.
The MPM curriculum is designed with working professionals in mind. Most MPM classes take place late in the day or in the evening.
The skills gained at Heinz College are both highly transferable and eagerly sought by organizations across sectors. Many of our MPM graduates continue in their current area upon completing the program, while many others change their focus or change fields entirely after receiving their degree.
Students are selected for admission to MPM based on the strength of their application materials and professional accomplishments. GRE/GMAT test scores are accepted but not required to apply to MPM.
