Saint Leo collaborates with NDNU to offer Master of Public Administration
Saint Leo is working in collaboration with Notre Dame de Namur University, a Catholic institution based in Belmont, CA, to make it easier for education, health care, law enforcement, and other public-service professionals to pursue a graduate degree for career advancement.
Through a collaborative effort, Saint Leo will provide prospective students with an easy-to-navigate admissions process, and Notre Dame will offer a quality online master’s degree program in public administration that fits the career and lifestyle needs of adult students.
“One of the benefits of this partnership is that students now have two quality academic institutions working together on their behalf,” said Dr. Melanie Storms, senior vice president at Saint Leo. “Our goal is to offer a program that is easy for the working professional to enter and access.”
The Master of Public Administration (MPA) program prepares professionals for administrative and management positions in public, nonprofit, and service-related organizations. The MPA is the preferred degree for many public-sector leaders because it delivers a comprehensive overview of organizations that rely on government budgets, taxes, or grants for funding.
The updated, online program helps students develop competencies for dealing with individual differences in skills and behaviors, and learn about the basics of personality development as it relates to management.
