Public sector management requires specific knowledge, skills and “sensitivity”. The MPA helps you to develop all of this, together with the practical skills necessary for your work. This is why the MPA’s pedagogy and working methods consist of a mix of traditional teaching and managerial education. With students and teachers from all over the world and strong ties with international institutions, the MPA is a useful experience for any public organization you work in.
The MPA is much more than a package of courses. It is a comprehensive and well-balanced learning path, designed to help you achieve the maximum standards of professional knowledge and behavior. From the basics of public management to concentrations and internships, the MPA’s learning environment fosters the development of the creative mindset required to tackle public management issues at a global level.
You can develop a large international network of contacts that typically include colleagues, faculty, guest speakers, public sector leaders, partner organizations, MPA Alumni and the larger Bocconi Alumni Community. A network of relationships that will continue to support and enrich you even after the end of the Master.
