Is MSPPM Right For Me?


The Master of Science in Public Policy & Management (MSPPM) is a master’s degree program that teaches students how to leverage data and technology in order to analyze, affect, and implement policy solutions that will impact society in meaningful ways.

The MSPPM is the ideal fit for students who see themselves as future leaders and change agents, and who have a desire to employ evidence-based problem-solving strategies that acknowledge the complexity and implications of technological change in the 21st century. MSPPM graduates typically find work in the public sector (including government at all levels, military, and national security), the non-profit sector, with international agencies and NGOs, or with private consulting firms.

MSPPM students all share a passion for collaboration, strong critical thinking, and intellectual curiosity. However, individual social, national, and educational backgrounds are quite varied. Quantitative abilities vary upon entry, but all MSPPM graduates emerge from the program with confidence in their ability to use data in problem solving.
