PADM 5114

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2019-2020.

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.

When Offered Spring.

Prerequisites/Corequisites Prerequisite/Corequisite: CIPA students who did not pass the English Language Assessment offered by CIPA during orientation are required to take PADM 5051, PADM 5053, or PADM 5055. CIPA students may also co-enroll in these courses while enrolled in this course.
