The purpose of the Florida Atlantic University Master of Public Administration (MPA) program is to provide professional education for leadership and management by offering a broad-based core curriculum that covers the essentials of both leadership and management in social, economic, and political contexts. We value professional competence, inclusivity, accountability, and ethical competence. Our MPA program mission is:
We prepare pre-service and in-service students in southeast Florida to be leaders, managers, and analysts for all levels of government by providing intellectual, analytical, technical, and practical education via a curriculum that students can customize to meet their professional goals.
We value the diversity of our students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community and we foster inclusiveness, participation, and cultural competence in our MPA courses and other educational activities.
We advance the state of knowledge in public administration through research activities and collaborations with internal and external partners that examine and address local, regional, state, national, and international matters of public concern.
We enhance ethical public service by encouraging ethical deliberation and decision-making in our MPA courses and through other educational activities.
