The Executive Master of Public Administration (EMPA) program is designed for the experienced and ambitious professional, who is looking for a top-quality and practical graduate program, but cannot take the time off to pursue full-time study. Students who successfully complete all requirements of the program will be awarded the degree of Master of Public Administration (MPA).The national need for trained policy analysts and public managers is a critical one, as public policy issues become larger and more complex. Common sense and intuition are inadequate guides in designing programs to address them. Professionals with broad training in policy analysis are able to break down highly complex problems into more manageable issues and specify the objectives to be achieved. They are also well suited to coordinate and implement coherent policy alternatives. Finally, individuals with professional training in public management are best equipped to implement successful cost-effective programs. The Executive MPA program at Columbia is deeply committed to preparing its graduates to play such leadership roles in public service.
