This graduate-level survey course addressing issues in public administration is designed for Executive Master of Public Administration (EMPA) students pursuing careers in government agencies, state and local authorities, and nonprofit organizations; and with private firms working in the public interest at the interface with government agencies.  A central theme of the course is strategic planning-how leaders of mission-driven organizations can purposefully meet their organization's objectives in divisive political environments.  The objectives of the course are to provide students with frameworks for analyzing various public management challenges from a strategic planning perspective, as well as a better understanding of the rationale and execution of strategic planning in public service.  Concepts are paired with case studies from international, federal, state, and local mission-driven organizations to encourage learning through application.
