Upper Iowa University



The University of Upper Iowa Master of Public Administration program with an emphasis on Government Administration provides learners with the knowledge and skills needed to assume a leadership role and to improve administrative and managerial quality in government and non-profit organizations.

The program intends to instill in learners an appreciation for how market efficiency and democratic values must be respected and balanced to promote the public good. Students will be able to apply their analytical, communication, problem solving and research skills to the complex and often interconnected and interdisciplinary problems faced by mangers and leaders in government agencies and non-profit organizations. Coursework for the Government Administration emphasis includes: Seminar in Federalism and Intergovernmental Relations, Administrative Law, Seminar in State and Local Government Management, Advanced Policy Analysis and Evaluation, and Economic Development: Theory and Practice.

Because UIU graduates are able to leverage the connections between theory and practice to help solve problems, they will be well qualified to assume managerial and leadership positions in the government and in the non-profit sector.
