MPP and MPA Programs

Columbia University, School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA) - MPA and MIA

Program Comparison Highlights

Institutional Structure: The School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA) is one of 16 schools within Columbia University.

Curriculum Design: The Columbia SIPA MPA is notable in several respects. It is, like the Princeton Woodrow Wilson MPA, one of the few MPA degrees that is offered by a school that also specializes in international affairs. With an 18-course degree, the SIPA MPA has one of the highest course requirements of any MPP/MPA program. It also offers one of the largest number of course electives within its program (almost 200). Our PEACO calculations below suggest that typical students take about 75% of their course work in policy-oriented subjects and 25% in management-oriented subjects. Typical students take about 23% of their course work in subjects with high math-economics content. This places the Columbia MPA in the "high course requirement, highly policy-oriented, higher math-economics content" curricular type, along with such programs as the Princeton MPA and the Chicago MPP (see MPP/MPA Curricular Types). Among peers in its curricular type, the Columbia MPA has as a very high number of courses and a high proportion of courses taught within the school. The Columbia SIPA MIA has very similar characteristics, with slightly more emphasis on "archetypal international affairs" subject matter and slightly less on "archetypal public affairs" subject matter.

Professional Program Features: SIPA's Office of Career Services "offers numerous ways to assist current students and alumni with their job search and professional networking, some of which are in the form of personalized appointments tailored to your specific career questions. Students and alumni can set up one-on-one appointments with either an OCS Career Adviser or a SIPA Career Coach" (at https://sipa.columbia.edu/careers/services/career-advising-and-coaching, accessed 20 February 2015). SIPA has 5 research centres and institutes: (Center for Development Economics and Policy; Center for International Conflict Resolution (CICR); Center on Global Energy Policy (CGEP); The Center on Global Economic Governance (CGEG); ; and Saltzman Institute of War and Peace Studies (SIWPS), see https://sipa.columbia.edu/faculty-research/centers-institutes/sipa-centers (accessed 20 May 2015). 

Program Summary

Website: http://bulletin.columbia.edu/sipa/programs/mpa/ and http://bulletin.columbia.edu/sipa/programs/mia/

University: Columbia University

Location: New York City

Degree: Master of Public Administration (MPA) and Master of International Affairs (MIA)

Note 1: SIPA also offers the MPA through the Executive Master of Public Administration (EMPA) program "for the experienced and ambitious professional, who is looking for a top-quality and practical graduate program, but cannot take the time off to pursue full-time study. Students who successfully complete all requirements of the program will be awarded the degree of Master of Public Administration (MPA)," at https://sipa.columbia.edu/academics/programs/executive-master-of-public-administration, accessed 20 February 2015). "Students enrolled in the Executive MPA program may complete the degree in either two or three years of study, depending on the course load they wish to carry. All students complete a set of core courses and choose between three concentrations. The program requires students to complete a total of 54 points, up to 9 of which are granted for professional and management work experience, and 45 are earned during the program of study. Upon approval of their academic advisor, students may transfer a total of two courses (6 points) from outside EMPA course offerings towards graduation requirements." Students who successfully complete all requirements of the program will be awarded the degree of Master of Public Administration (MPA). 

Marketing Approach: "The most global public policy school, where an international community of students and faculty address world challenges" (at https://sipa.columbia.edu/, accessed 20 February 2015.)  "For more than 60 years, Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs has been educating professionals who work in public, private and nonprofit organizations to make a difference in the world. Through rigorous social science research and hands-on practice, SIPA’s graduates and faculty strive to improve social services, advocate for human rights, strengthen markets, protect the environment, and secure peace, in their home communities and around the world. The curricula of SIPA’s seven degree programs all combine training in analytical methods and practical management skills to ensure that graduates are prepared to understand problems and implement solutions. Students combine these core skills with a focus on a policy area of their choice, and they typically engage in a practice-oriented capstone or workshop experience toward the end of their studies. The School draws its strengths from the resources of New York City and Columbia University, and yet has a global reach, with a student body that is 50 percent international; 17,000 graduates in more than 150 countries; and educational partners in global cities such as London, Paris, Berlin, Singapore, Beijing, Mexico City, and São Paulo." (At https://sipa.columbia.edu/experience-sipa/about-sipa, accessed 20 February 2015.) 

Degrees Awarded per Year: MPA: approximately 195; MIA: approximately 205. (Based on the enrollment statistics for 2013-14 on page 50 of the SIPA Annual Report 2013-2014, at http://issuu.com/columbiauniversitysipa/docs/460-02535_sipa-ar_nj_v10/1, accessed 18 May 2015.)

Academic Unit within University: The School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA) is one of 16 schools within Columbia University. It was given its present name in 1981, four years after the School of International Affairs (founded, 1946) began offering the Master of Public Administration degree. SIPA has had the power of appointing its own faculty since the early 1990s. (See https://sipa.columbia.edu/experience-sipa/about-sipa/history-of-sipa, accessed 20 February 2015.)

Related Academic Units and Degrees: SIPA offers the following degrees: Master of International Affairs; Master of Public Administration; MPA in Environmental Science; MPA in Development Practice; PhD in Sustainable Development.

Posted Fees: $54,049 per year, including health insurance fee, for 2015-16 (at https://sipa.columbia.edu/admissions/preparing-to-apply/miampa-tuition, accessed 17 May 2015).

Concentration/Curriculum Overview: The MPA and MIA degree requirements and curricular design are almost identical. The SIPA website shows a comparison at: https://sipa.columbia.edu/admissions/sipa-selector. There appear to be three major differences. The first is that the MIA requires "proficiency in a language other than English is required for graduation" where "proficiency is defined as the ability to read, write and speak the language at the Intermediate II level." The MPA has no language requirement. The second is that the core curriculum for the MIA includes a 4-point course on Conceptual Foundations of International Politics (INAF U6800-6804) while the MPA requires a 4-point course on Politics of Policymaking (either PUAF U6110-6113 or PUAF U6120-6122). The third is that, as a consequence of the non-English language requirement, the MIA has one more course than the MPA in the core curriculum (25.5 credits rather than 22.5 credits) and one fewer elective course (4.5 credits rather than 7.5 credits).

MPA and MIA Degree Requirements

Summary:
"
The MPA curriculum has been designed to develop public affairs professionals, who understand the increasingly complex issues shaping local and national level policies and projects and who have the analytical and managerial skills to apply their knowledge to real world situations. Although the students and faculty in the MPA program focus on local and national projects, they do so in a global context, drawing on the international strengths of SIPA. MPA students and faculty come from around the world, with international students constituting more than 50% of the student body. They work on a variety of local and national issues, ranging from economic development in Kazakhstan, to environmental issues in Japan, to municipal bond ratings or city management in New York. Corresponding to the career interests of MPA students, this curriculum draws on the vast international resources of SIPA, Columbia and the Global Public Policy Network to address a wide variety of local and national level policy issues in a rapidly globalizing context." (At https://sipa.columbia.edu/academics/programs/master-of-public-administration, accessed 20 February 2015.)

"The MIA curriculum develops international affairs professionals who understand complex transnational issues and can manage real-world organizations. The MIA core includes courses on international issues and requires students to demonstrate proficiency in a language other than English. It also requires an internship, usually performed during the summer after the first year of course work, and a Capstone workshop to provide hands-on experience in real-life assignments for diverse organizations in the public, private, and non-profit sectors." (At https://sipa.columbia.edu/academics/programs/master-of-international-affairs, accessed 8 March 2015.)

Core Curriculum: MPA - The purpose of the core curriculum is to ensure that every student in the MPA program receives basic, broad-based, interdisciplinary training in public affairs. This includes graduate-level course work in economics, statistics, the politics of policymaking, and management. Students are required to take a two-semester course in economics, one course on politics (Politics of Policymaking), and one-semester courses in statistics, management, and financial management. Politics of Policymaking, economics, and statistics must be taken during the first year. Other core requirements can be distributed throughout a student’s program of study. Students also are required to complete Professional Development during their first year; this is a two-session course that focuses on career advancement strategies.

MIA - The purpose of the core curriculum is to ensure that every student in the MIA program receives basic, broad-based, interdisciplinary training in international affairs. This includes graduate-level course work in economics, statistics, interstate relations and management. Students must also demonstrate proficiency in a foreign language. Students are required to take a year-long course in international economics, two international politics courses (Conceptual Foundations of International Politics and one course in interstate relations), and one-semester courses in statistics, management, and financial management. Conceptual Foundations, Economics, Statistics, and Professional Development must be taken during the first year. Other core requirements can be distributed throughout a student’s program of study.

Policy Concentration Curricula: MIA and MPA: All students choose one of 6 policy field concentrations: Economic and Political Development, Energy and Environment (includes tracks in energy and environment), Human Rights and Humanitarian Policy, International Finance and Economic Policy (includes tracks in finance and economic policy), International Security Policy, or Urban and Social Policy. The requirements differ but typically require 5 or 6 courses from a longer list (See http://bulletin.columbia.edu/sipa/concentrations/, accessed 20 February 2015).

Specialization Curricula: MIA and MPA: All students choose one of 6 specializations (similar to a minor) consisting of three courses (9 points) focused on a skill or area of specialized knowledge to complement their policy concentration.

Duration: 2 years (4 semesters, usually with an internship during the summer).

Academic Prerequisite: "Because SIPA’s core curriculum includes economics, statistics, and financial management, the Admissions Committee looks for evidence of a candidate's ability to undertake quantitative coursework at the graduate level. There are no specific prerequisites for admission, but the Committee prefers applicants who have completed introductory courses in macro- and microeconomics. Broadly speaking, courses in economics, statistics, and mathematics will bolster an applicant’s candidacy and provide a helpful foundation for study here. To complete the (optional) higher-level economics sequence requires familiarity with calculus, and even the lower-level sequence assumes an understanding of algebra. Applicants lacking any quantitative background are therefore encouraged to consider enrolling in high-level mathematics courses above all else, and if possible a statistics course as well. To pursue careers in certain fields — development economics, quantitative policy analysis, trade, finance, environmental economics, energy policy, and international banking — requires an even higher level of preparation before enrolling at SIPA — namely, completion of calculus and an intermediate micro- and macroeconomic sequence at the undergraduate or graduate level. Students without an economics background who are interested in pursuing these fields are strongly encouraged to make up this deficiency before applying to SIPA. No particular undergraduate major is required, but those looking ahead to possible study at SIPA can take courses in international relations, political science, foreign languages, and history. Applicants whose fields of study were far from the international relations or public administration fields are advised to address with extra care in their essay why they now wish to “change gears” and study at SIPA. The only truly common thread uniting successful applicants to SIPA is that most have had at least three years of work or internship experience relevant to their intended course of study. Our students come from every corner of the globe, with vastly different professional backgrounds and work experience. But experience at an international relief organization, a government agency, a nonprofit or nongovernmental organization, or a corporation with operations in the international sphere (to name a few examples) will certainly make your application more competitive. Each year, 5 to 10 percent of accepted students come directly from undergraduate institutions. These are individuals with extraordinary academic records who have also had significant internship or study abroad experience. In some cases, recent undergraduates with very strong academic credentials are not offered admission but are encouraged to reapply after they have gained at least one year or more of relevant work experience." (At https://sipa.columbia.edu/admissions/preparing-to-apply/miampa-evaluation-criteria, accessed 20 February 2015.) 

Number of One-Semester-Equivalent Courses Required for Completion: 18. See Note 2.

Note 2: The MPA and MIA requirement is 54 credits (see https://sipa.columbia.edu/admissions/sipa-selector, accessed 8 March 2015) although the Sample Program (http://bulletin.columbia.edu/sipa/programs/mpa/#sampleprogramtext) has 57 points plus a required Internship worth 1-3 points (depending on duration).

Students may also take electives from outside the School: "As part of the Columbia community, SIPA students are often said to be spoiled for choice. They have access to the resources of a major urban university comprising 16 separate schools, 22 libraries, and five affiliated institutions. During any given year, they choose more than 1,000 courses offered throughout the University, drawing on the resources of the social science departments and the schools of business, law, journalism, social work, public health, engineering and applied science, and architecture, as well as Teachers College," at https://sipa.columbia.edu/experience-sipa/about-sipa, accessed 20 February 2015.
