The Queen's Professional MPA Experience [PMPA]

 

Are you ready to advance your career?

Established in 1976, the Queen's Professional Master of Public Administration was a forerunner to many of today's executive degree programs. Its original vision was to provide "in-service" professionals in government, the broader public sector and not-for-profit organizations with the opportunity to fully combine formal classroom-based learning with student-focused learning through informal discussion and debate outside the classroom.

Nearly 40 cohorts and over 1000 alumni have now completed the program and are engaged in senior roles at all levels of governments and other organizations across Canada and beyond. You will greatly benefit through the personal contact with faculty and new colleagues, who are tremendously diverse in their academic, professional and personal experience. Part of the excitement of the program, is that you are part of a learning community and an expansive network of policy expertise.  It provides experienced policy professionals with the knowledge, skills and confidence to take their career to the next level.
