Cornell University
Welcome to the Cornell MPA Program

At the Cornell Institute for Public Affairs (CIPA), we educate the public policy leaders of tomorrow. We offer a remarkably flexible but challenging academic curriculum, blended with substantial hands-on, practical experience.

Some of our Fellows are focused on food security issues. Others are dedicated to studying environmental policy. Still others wish to develop the necessary skills to manage a government or nonprofit organization, to shape the future of science and technology, or to enter the world of international development.

CIPA Fellows have the flexibility to shape their future. And they have the luxury of tapping into resources from across the university to meet their goal!
