About the MPA

At the UCL Institute for Innovation and Public Purpose (IIPP), one of our founding beliefs is that markets can be shaped by purposeful policy making and by new collaborations between the state, business and civil society. Markets can be designed to deliver public value.
Our new Master of Public Administration (MPA): Innovation, Public Policy and Public Value will provide students with the dynamic skills required to steer purpose-driven organisations in public, private and civic sectors to tackle the grand challenges of the 21st century. The MPA is built on four globally unique modules around public valueinnovation for grand challengescreative bureaucracies, and strategic design and digital transformation.

Graduates of this programme will help organisations refocus themselves to become mission-led, driven by public purpose, and able to welcome and manage the explorative and risk-taking processes that structural change, innovation, and socio-economic transformation require. Key to this is rethinking of public and societal value: how to create, to nurture and to evaluate it.
