MBA/MPP

The Georgetown Public Policy Institute and the Georgetown MBA Program offer a three-year program that leads to dual MBA/MPP degrees. This dual program is intended for students who are interested who seek to make an impact by collaborating across the public, private, and nonprofit sectors.

A Master of Public Policy (MPP) degree equips students with a set of core skills in policy analysis, program evaluation, management, and politics that prove valuable in many settings in both the U.S. and around the world. Governments, nonprofit, and private employers need highly-skilled, well-trained policy analysts who can dissect a problem, analyze and interpret data, and evaluate and create alternative courses of action. The MPP degree endows its practitioners with the analytical tools and critical discernment to tackle today’s most pressing policy questions.

Candidates seeking positions that require strong leadership skills, policy expertise, and a solid business foundation in careers in public policy, nonprofit management, international development, and the private sector, should strongly consider augmenting their graduate business studies with a Masters in Public Policy from the Georgetown Public Policy Institute.
