Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2017-2018.

This course will provide MPA students with a graduate-level overview of key principles and techniques in applying systems thinking to organizational leadership, change and design in public and nonprofit contexts. CIPA is a graduate program that prepares students for leadership positions in public and nonprofit service; although CIPA's learning outcomes are still in progress, we expect mastery in three foundation areas (management/administration, economic analysis, quantitative techniques) followed by specialization in one of eight concentrations. This course, as it is structured, provides students with a range of applied methodologies and tools that are relevant across all MPA degree concentrations. Of particular note is the opportunity for students to present their original research at a public symposium/conference at the end of the semester.
