About our MPA Graduates

There is nothing generic about the Cornell MPA degree—or our graduates. Each of our students receives intensive training in the areas of administration, economics and quantitative analysis. This classroom education is enhanced by practical, real-world work experience. The flexibility of our curriculum also allows our Fellows to specialize their studies by focusing on one of our eight concentration areas:

  • Economic and Financial Policy
  • Environmental Policy
  • Government, Politics and Policy Studies
  • Human Rights and Social Justice
  • International Development Studies
  • Public and Nonprofit Management
  • Science, Technology, and Infrastructure Policy
  • Social Policy

CIPA graduates enter the job market with a sound foundation and a wealth of expertise aligned with their particular career goals. That’s why they are competitive across the public and private sectors, and have an outstanding track record of employment.

The CIPA Office of Career Management is available to help you in a variety of ways:
