Picker Center for Executive Education

The Center is dedicated to meeting the educational needs of mid-career learners unable to attend school full-time. The Picker Center was founded in 1999 by a gift from former Dean Harvey Picker. In addition to the Picker Center's Executive Master of Public Administration degree (EMPA), the Center also hosts various non-degree programs covering a wide range of topics and serving very diverse constituencies.

The Picker Center develops customized training courses to improve management and core skills. Since its founding, the Picker Center has assisted the Fire Department of New York on the development of its diversity initiative and evaluation of its innovative CPR program, the New York City Department of Citywide Services with its leadership training initiative and the United Nations Development Program with its LEAD recruitment initiative and Virtual Development Academy.

Currently the Picker Center annually hosts "The International Financial Issues in Emerging Markets" program in partnership with the Inter-American Development Bank. At this time this program is the only open enrollment program offered through the Picker Center, for more information please forward all inquiries to
