MASTER OF SCIENCE IN PUBLIC POLICY AND MANAGEMENT (MSPPM)
Become a future leader and change agent in public policy to improve lives.
To tackle society’s most complex problems, a firm understanding of policy is essential, but so are the technology and analytical foundations to create the right solutions—and the management prowess to deploy those solutions for maximum impact.
The Carnegie Mellon University MSPPM program gives you evidence-based, problem-solving skills that simply cannot be matched by any other school of public policy, school of management, or school offering purely technical training.
MSPPM graduates are employed across various government entities, non-profits, international agencies, and private consulting firms. Over the past three years, nearly half of our graduates had starting salaries of $75K or more.
MSPPM applicants can be considered for various merit, partnership and other scholarship opportunities that can help offset the tuition cost. In fact, the average scholarship award for the fall 2021 class was 50%!
