MPA – Development Practice Incubator

The MPA-Development Practice program will be turning 10 next year, and the new MPA-DP Incubator page highlights entrepreneurial enterprises that alumni have founded and fostered since graduating.

Organizations are located all around the world and focus on a variety of issues, from supporting Latin American female tech talent to bringing affordable childhood care and education to low-income communities in East Africa.

The MPA-DP program prepares students for a career where companies are becoming more complex and increasingly inclusive of all countries and societies. Check back in to the Incubator page as new organizations are still being added. And if you’re interested in being part of the diverse, interdisciplinary cohort that makes up our innovative MPA-DP program, read more about it here.

Another Monday

After a “relaxing” weekend, most of us return to work ready to conquer our weekly to-do list with enthusiasm and determination.  There’s always a lot to do on a Monday — mainly catching up on emails from the weekend and trying to address time sensitive issues quickly.  There seems to be a lot of those these days.

This Monday we’re also preparing for our Wednesday virtual information session (if you haven’t registered, there’s still time to join in on the fun).  We’re also preparing to hop on a plane to Houston, TX – Email us if you want to meet Alvin in person to talk about our programs and the admissions process.  We’ve updated our recruitment schedule on our website with a few more off campus events we will be participating in this fall (more to come).

Another big project we’re working on that will affect many of you soon; we are launching a new application for the fall admissions period — very exciting but also complicated from the back end.  If we do it right, you won’t notice a thing but if we don’t put it together properly then I know our phones will ring with anxious prospective candidates.  So we’re aiming to get it right the first time.  This will not affect those of you interested in applying for our Spring 2014 term since we will still be on the current platform [with some improvements].  For those of you who are ready to get down to business and don’t want to wait an entire year to join a great community and start working on your Master of International Affairs or Master of Public Administration degree, stay tuned for the launch of our Spring application. (Sorry, our MPA in Development Practice program is only offered in the fall.)


"The most global public policy school, where an international community of students and faculty address world challenges."
