Knust masters in Public administration

The knust master of public administration (MPA) is a master's degree in public affairs that prepares students to serve in executive positions in municipal, state, and federal government and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs). The program's focus is basically on principles of public administration, policy development and management, and implementation of policies. It also prepares the student to deal with specific challenges faced in public administration. A master of public administration (MPA) is considered the public sector equivalent of a master of business administration (MBA) degree in the private sector.

In the second year, in addition to courses in public administration and other areas, students also write a two-semester-long essay under supervision.
