Goal: The main focus of the program is a combination of studying business disciplines in a global context and understanding the cultural and social processes in different countries.

 

Graduates are prepared for managerial work, in which it is vital to understand the economic and cultural diversity of different players in real-world situations on the global market. In addition to a basic knowledge of finance, marketing, strategic management and communication theory graduates will possess the ability to conduct market analysis, make decisions, and complete projects. They will also be able to understand the characteristics and nuances of other cultures, allowing them to work in different countries in a multinational, multicultural global context. Textbooks alone cannot teach this. These skills are best obtained by living and studying in another country, and this why the students are also given an opportunity of studying for one semester abroad in one of the partner-universities.

 
Mission:  formation of a force of professional managers, entrepreneurs, and leaders of a market-oriented economy who are entrepreneurial, ethical, competitive, and ready to work successfully in both national and global environments.

 
The “International Management” Master’s Program is designed in accordance with European standards, which are confirmed by the international accreditation of EPAS EFMD. The program allows students to study for one semester in our foreign partner-university as a part of our “Double Degree” Program, by which one can receive a masters degree in Europe. This innovative program includes project-oriented teaching as a means of building core competencies: Considerable attention is given to methodology and personal development, which is not characteristic of Russia’s educational tradition. Both the very structure of the program itself and the content of the individual program units were developed in collaboration with our foreign partner-universities. Students can take full advantage of our international team of professors and lecturers from the world’s top universities, consultancies, and multinational companies.

 
Other key advantages and elements of the program include the opportunity to participate in actual, relevant projects together with foreign students; interactive sessions; business simulations; training; discussions on today’s most pressing problems; the behavioral aspects of project and change management; the unique features of management in an international environment; negotiation; and modeling and management processes.

A Master’s in Public Administration, or MPA Program, is a degree that prepares students for a public service career, usually–but not exclusively–in an area of government. A public administration program teaches students governance, administration and finance, as well as analytical skills. Core coursework usually includes the study of public administration, administrative decision making, ethics, organizational theory, strategic planning, microeconomics, financial management and managerial statistics. The field of public administration is very broad, and students have a wide variety of tracks available to them. They may choose one of several possible concentrations, such as administration, organizational leadership, human resources management, city and county leadership, public service leadership, criminal justice, homeland security or health care administration, among others.

Through its history, the MPA degree has become more interdisciplinary by drawing from fields such as economics, sociology, law, anthropology, political science, and regional planning in order to equip MPA graduates with skills and knowledge covering a broad range of topics and disciplines relevant to the public sector. A core curriculum of a typical MPA program usually includes courses on microeconomics, public finance, research methods / statistics, policy process and policy analysis, public financial management, managerial accounting, ethics, public management, leadership, planning & Geographic Information Systems (GIS), and program evaluation/performance measurement. Depending on their interest, MPA students can focus their studies on a variety of public sector fields such as urban planning, emergency management, transportation, health care (especially public health), economic development, urban management, community development, education, non-profits, information technology, environmental policy, cultural policy, criminal justice, etc.

 

Careers

A public administration degree has very broad applicability. A masters in public administration prepares a student to create or implement government policy or programs, manage people or resources, perform policy analysis, manage human resources or organizational assets, and manage budgets—skills that may be utilized in any number of managerial careers. A public administration masters may be used as a springboard to an executive job in a large corporation or a managerial job at a nonprofit organization. It may result in a career as an urban planner, government policy analyst, lawyer, hospital executive or human resources manager. Graduates with a public administration masters are equipped with desirable skills that transfer easily from one sector to another.

 

Job Outlook

Demand for workers with a public administration degree is expected to be higher than average in the next decade, especially for chief executives, public relations specialists, general and operations managers, surveying technicians, financial examiners and climate change analysts. These jobs are expected to grow especially quickly and offer large numbers of job openings. Most of these jobs are in governance, rather than other areas of public administration, such as national security, planning or revenue.

Focus

Most students embark on a public administration program because they’re excited about the prospect of making a difference in the world. They look forward to making a difference in the lives of other people by creating or implementing positive change. An MPA degree, while eminently practical, is attractive for many because it offers the chance to translate idealistic dreams into present-day realities.
