We are excited to announce that this fall, the Korbel School will launch an Executive Master of Public Policy (E-MPP) degree in conjunction with the Scrivner Institute of Public Policy. The program will target mid-career individuals with 7 or more years of experience who are interested in strengthening their qualifications in the policy arena. Students will gain the expertise and skills to identify, analyze, and solve challenging policy issues at urban, state, national, and global levels of governance. Graduates of the program will be prepared for advanced policy-related professional careers in the public, private, and non-profit sectors. Ensuring flexibility for students is a key goal for the program. Students can complete the 46-credit E-MPP degree in either 1 or 2 academic years and can choose whether they want to undertake coursework in-person at Korbel or primarily online.

"We at the Korbel School are excited to engage with mid-career students looking for a tailored and focused approach to enhancing their understanding of public policy in all its facets with a view to accelerating their careers in and around the policy sphere.” 

- Naazneen Barma, Associate Professor and Director of the Scrivner Institute of Public Policy
