ASE’s MPA curriculum is designed as an upgrade to the existing programs due to its rigorous training in Statistics and Economics as well its tight connection with government and international agencies. The structure of the ASE’s MPA program is similar to that of our MBA programs. It includes two tracks:

  • The full-time MPA (FMPA) that provides two-year intensive trainings in two sub-fields:
    • Public Management
    • International Relations
  • The part-time MPA (PMPA) targeting qualified public officials and full time government employees and which will run over three years or more.
