Looking for an alternative to a business career? The demand for individuals with analytical and leadership skills is high—and growing—in government and at non-profit organizations.
Whether you wish to serve your country or community, or you feel passionate about a cause, a Master of Public Administration (M.P.A.) from Clark University's School of Professional Studies (SPS) can prepare you for a rewarding career. Students in our M.P.A. program develop the executive skills needed to manage operational issues, policy, organizational challenges, communications and politically sensitive concerns.
Government plays a vital role in every country by managing the welfare and safety of its people. Likewise, the non-profit sector employs those who want to make a difference by improving healthcare, the environment and quality of life. Together those sectors make up 30% of the U.S. workforce, so there are plenty of career opportunities for program graduates.
