MPA in Government Management

In its most pure form, the study of public administration inherently includes the study of government management – or, rather how those placed in positions of power and leadership handle managing the economic, social, and environmental needs of their citizens. The study of Government Management, as a concentration of a Master of Public Administration degree, involves the study of how different government divisions and employees interact with each other to accomplish their goals.

A typical MPA in Government Management degree often narrows its focus to an area of government with numerous parallels, such as at the state level where each state runs itself in a relatively similar manner. Such a program includes coursework focusing on the organization and function of state government. Such a course breaks down the structure of government at the state level, utilizing examples of functional and dysfunctional government entities to analyze what trends work across various government entities. The legislative process and public policy analysis will also likely be studied, as will the gubernatorial and administrative process. Candidates who succeed in earning the MPA in Government Management will be strong fits to manage the operations of a government department, especially if their daily work entails working together with other like-minded public entities.
