Hosted by Institute for Innovation and Public Purpose (IIPP) Director, Professor Mariana Mazzucato, and Deputy Director, Professor Rainer Kattel, join them for a presentation about the course followed by a Q&A session where they will answer your MPA-related questions.

When you have registered, you will receive a reminder email a day before the event which will contain a link to the virtual open day, where you can watch a live presentation on the Master of Public Administration in Innovation, Public Policy and Public Value as well as ask MPA-related questions to the Directors of IIPP.

Starting September 2019, the MPA provides students with the dynamic skills required for purpose-driven organisations—in public, private and civil sectors—to confront the grand challenges of the 21st century, whether that be climate change, ageing populations or rising inequality.

IIPP’s mission is to change how public value is imagined, practiced and evaluated to tackle societal challenges and achieve economic growth that is more innovation-led, sustainable and inclusive. The MPA will equip graduates with the innovative toolkit required to champion this mission while managing the explorative and risk-taking processes that structural change, innovation, and socio-economic transformation requires.
