Fels executive students enjoy a moment outside the classroom on the Pont Neuf in Paris

Executive MPA

Skills + Connections = Opportunities

Since its founding, Fels has offered its programs for working professionals on schedules designed for their convenience.

The Students

Executive students come from a wide range of academic and professional backgrounds.  Architects sit next to political consultants, editors next to budgeters, government employees next to corporate government relations managers.  They learn from one another and form enduring professional relationships that they rely on throughout their careers.

The Experience

In the executive format, all MPA core classes are available on Saturdays.  Electives may also be taken on Saturdays although a broader palette of electives is available in the evening on weekdays.  Most executive students take two classes per term, including summers, and complete the program in six terms although students can make arrangements to complete the degree at a faster or slower pace.
