The UCL Institute for Innovation and Public Purpose (IIPP) leads the world in rethinking the role of the public sector in co-creating value and driving change.
There is no equivalent post-graduate degree that combines our alternative approach to policymaking, with a focus on structural change and innovation. Our MPA teaches the dynamic skills required for purpose-driven organisations — in public, private, and civil sectors — to confront the grand challenges of the 21st century. Tackling these challenges requires new ways of thinking and new organisational capabilities.
As graduates of the programme, students will be equipped to help reshape organisations to be mission-led, experimental, and driven by public purpose. Students will understand the explorative and risk-taking processes that structural change, innovation, and socioeconomic transformation require.
