The Master of Public Administration in Economic Policy Management at Columbia University offers policy makers and practitioners the tools to effectively design and implement economic policies in market economies, with a strong emphasis on the economic problems of developing countries. The program has existed for more than 25 years and has trained public leaders in several countries around the world. The info session will also bring information about scholarship opportunities for the program.

The Columbia University MPA in Economic Policy Management is designed to provide professionals and policymakers of demonstrated achievement and superior promise with the skills required to design and implement economic policy effectively, with a strong emphasis on the policy issues of developing and transition economies. The Program was initiated as a cooperative endeavor of Columbia University's School of International and Public Affairs, Graduate School of Business, and Department of Economics in cooperation with the World Bank, and continues to maintain strong ties to the World Bank.

The intensive 12-month program of study provides unparalleled training in micro and macroeconomic policy management, international finance, econometrics and supporting courses in management and development science. The program starts at the end of May and ends the following May. MPA-EPM students choose one of three focus areas: Economic Policy Management (EPM), Global Energy Policy Management (GEMP) or Central Banking and Financial Markets (CBFM). The program begins in late May and culminates the following May, offering a Master of Public Administration degree from Columbia University. Upon graduation from the program, students join an alumni network that spans 140 countries around the globe and includes current and former finance ministers, governors and deputy governors of central banks, and CEOs and top managers in private and public sector organizations.
