In total, the program takes an average of 21 months to complete.

Up to six months after graduation, nearly half of the students that complete the MPA program have gone into the private sector. 93.6 percent overall have either been employed or are pursuing further study compared to 6 percent still looking for employment.

Syracuse University

The Maxwell School’s Master of Public Administration offers a 12-month program, or 18 months with an internship option, under eight different areas of study: Data Analytics for Public Policy, Environmental Policy and Administration, International Development Administration, National and International Security Policy, Public and Nonprofit Management, Public Sector Innovation and Management, Social Policy, and State and Local Government Financial Analysis and Management.

These areas connect with a core curriculum and a capstone project that integrates study into real-life situations.
