The purpose of the curriculum is to equip graduates with competencies essential for public service leadership:
This is our version of an internship, where students receive an opportunity to further develop their leadership competencies in a public service work environment and gain work experience for career advancement.
This project showcases a student’s public administration competencies during the final semester in the program and includes a comprehensive oral exam and written response to an issue facing the public sector.
