Drake’s Master of Public Administration (M.P.A.) takes your skillset and knowledge to the next level and provides you with the broad expertise it takes to lead a public or nonprofit organization. Drake’s M.P.A. allows you to easily integrate public management coursework with business management, accounting, marketing, and information systems—courses taught with the public sector in mind.
Each student has specific career goals, so we make it possible for you to customize your degree with courses in various areas of emphasis, including human resources, public policy, and executive development.
Drake’s M.P.A. is the only program offering in-person courses in Central Iowa. While we do offer some online courses, we believe that the learning experience you receive in a Drake classroom just can’t be matched behind a computer.
