Executive Master of Public Administration schedule

You are here

For one weekend (Friday and Saturday) each month, Executive MPA students come to campus for an intensive weekend of instruction, class discussions, and group activities. During the weeks in between, students use a cutting-edge online platform to support lecture, discussion, and in-depth interaction among students and faculty.

Executive MPA students take two courses per semester for six consecutive terms, giving our students the ability to finish the degree in two years.
