Global Policy and Management on a Complex International Stage

UCL's School of Public Policy and NYU Wagner, in a unique partnership, offer an innovative one-year Joint Master of Public Administration, Executive programme in Global Public Policy and Management (Global EMPA).

Global Content at Global Sites, in One Year

Students spend the first semester (fall) at NYU Wagner in New York City, the spring term at UCL in London, and the summer in locations across the globe working on a client-based Capstone project.

A Call for Experienced Leaders

The Global EMPA is intended for experienced leaders – analysts, decision makers, and managers – in domestic and international organizations, and in the public, nonprofit, and private sectors. The program equips public service leaders with the knowledge and skills they need to design and implement effective and sustainable solutions to unprecedented global challenges.

Addressing Global Challenges at the Intersections

Whatever their chosen field, today's global leaders need to be able to develop and implement creative, cross-sector policies in a complex environment in which many communities and organizations have a stake. They may also find themselves moving across a variety of public, nonprofit, and private sector institutions in different locations during their careers.

During their year in the Global EMPA, students improve their ability to craft effective solutions to problems in the face of global and local policy and management challenges. They will learn to balance advantages of public and private sector actors;  promote successful inter-governmental cooperation at all levels; more effectively link policy analysis with policy implementation; and broadly ensure that policy is meeting its intended objectives and improving human welfare.

Candidates wishing to apply for this programme must apply on the NYU Wagner website.
