The Executive MPA is designed for experienced executives and managers who seek a challenging and accelerated program of study. The coursework highlights current issues and problems that confront leaders in public affairs. To link theory with practice, Baruch’s faculty co-teach several courses with prominent public and nonprofit practitioners who bring real-world knowledge to the classroom. Admission requires a minimum of 3-5 years professional management experience and an undergraduate GPA of 3.0 or a graduate-level degree in another field. Classes meet for 35 Saturdays during each year from September to June. Most courses are offered over a 10-week period, with the remaining classes taught in an intensive 5-week schedule. Each student cohort is comprised of approximately 20-30 students with two cohorts attending simultaneously (one in the first year of the program, one in the second). Students pay a special program fee that covers tuition, required books, breakfast and lunch on class days, staff support, computer training, career seminars, guest lecturers, and special events.
