The MPP provides a set of core skills in economics, quantitative methods, management, and politics, allowing our students to evaluate and respond to today’s most pressing policy challenges. The MPP emphasizes analytical skills, enabling graduates to be highly effective in designing, analyzing and implementing policy in the US and around the globe.
The Executive Master in Policy Leadership (EMPL) equips students with the necessary knowledge and skills to effectively lead in today’s complex, dynamic policy environment. Over 16 months, students participate in ten hybrid courses each composed of a five-day, in-person experience. Central to each course is an alignment with the Executive Core Qualifications (ECQs) emphasizing strategic leadership. The McCourt School will pause the EMPL program after the 2021-2022 academic year. Please contact our admissions office if you have questions, or to discuss other similar educational opportunities at McCourt.
