Kokomo Campus Graduate Degree Program

Master of Public Management (M.P.M.)
Kokomo Certificate Program

Master of Public Management (M.P.M.)

The Master of Public Management program provides public service managers the skills to cope with challenging human and technical issues. It also provides a broad interdisciplinary background in the values and ethics of public management. It is designed as preparation for executive leadership positions in the public, private, and nonprofit sectors.

The program can be completed on either a full-time or part-time basis. Most coursework for the program is offered in the evenings to allow students to work full-time and participate in the M.P.M. program part-time.

To meet the needs of our dynamic and diverse student population, SPEA offers three avenues for graduate education: online courses, cohort programs (intensive weekend courses), and traditional courses offered on the Indiana University Kokomo campus. Online courses provide the option to complete coursework from a location of choice. Weekend cohort courses conveniently condense a semester-long course into several weekend sessions.

Degree Requirements

(36 credit hours)

The 36 credit hours of courses require the completion of 18 credit hours in core courses, 12 credit hours in the concentration area, 3 credit hours in experiential or professional requirements, and 3 credit hours in electives. The electives add breadth to a chosen program, further exploration of the field of concentration, or enhance quantitative and analytical skills or administrative techniques. The experiential requirement ensures that each graduate of the M.P.M. program gains insight into the world ofpublic service through an experience outside the classroom.

The certificate program is flexible enough to be adapted to the needs of precareer and inservice individuals.
