Creating transformations

Curriculum for the MPA directly reflects the most pressing competencies needed for public administrators as determined by a 2014 survey conducted by the Colorado Municipal League and Colorado Counties Inc. These competencies include the need for public administrators to work with citizen groups, organizational systems and change management, human resource management, budget and resource allocation, and ethics. In Colorado Christian University’s program, MPA students will learn to construct budgets and statistical analyses, conduct program evaluations and policy analyses, and manage and lead alongside other working adults.
