The Urban Policy Analysis and Management Program produces leaders with solid analytic skills, an in-depth understanding of management and political strategies, and the ability to work effectively with people, especially in teams. Students also develop negotiation and consensus-building skills. The centerpiece of the program is an experiential curriculum designed to give students a sound foundation in the techniques, theory, and practice of the profession. Students learn how to challenge conventional solutions to the world’s complex problems by engaging with public officials, nonprofit leaders, and private-sector executives.
Using a variety of instructional approaches—including case analyses, computer-based problem sets, and actual policy and management problems posed by public officials and nonprofit executives—the program introduces students to settings and problems they will face as professionals. The Urban Policy Analysis and Management master's program is built around courses in which students develop the intellectual and technical foundations and values of the profession. These are widely applicable to careers in the public, nonprofit, and private sectors.
The Master of Science in Urban Policy Analysis and Management is conferred for completion of 42 credits, consisting of two core courses, six program courses, and five electives. In the capstone seminar, students develop individual research- and/or practice-based projects in a collaborative and multidisciplinary learning environment.
Full-time students who enter the program without relevant work experience must complete a professional internship (minimum of 400 hours).
Internships allow Milano School students to sharpen their abilities and build confidence through intensive involvement with professionals in actual work settings.
