MPP and MPA Programs

Université de Moncton, Département d'administration publique, DAP - MPA 

Program Comparison Highlights

Institutional Structure: The Département d'administration publique is an academic unit within the Faculté des arts et des sciences sociales at the Moncton Campus of the Université de Moncton.

Curriculum Design: The Moncton MPA (Maîtrise en administration publique) differs from most other North American MPP/MPA programs in that a) it is delivered in French and b) it has a course requirement of 20 (18 one-semester courses and a mandatory internship). Our PEACO calculations below suggest that typical students take about 43% of their course work in policy-oriented subjects and 57% in management-oriented subjects and that that typical students take about 11% of their work in courses with high math-economics content. This places the Moncton MPA in the "high course requirement, management-oriented, lower math-economics content" curricular type, along with such programs as Dalhousie MPA, the Manitoba-Winnipeg MPA and the Melbourne MPPM. The competency gap analysis below suggests that a Moncton MPA has 224 course-weeks of instruction in core MPP/MPA subjects, the highest of all programs in our database. The subject-matter shortfalls are among the lowest in the database, with the largest gaps are in quantitative  methods (12 course-weeks) and macroeconomic policy (6 course-weeks).
