The MPA degree in Development Practice (MPA-DP) trains aspiring practitioners to understand, develop and implement integrated approaches to sustainable development. Drawing on the extraordinary educational and research facilities of Columbia University, the MPA-DP emphasizes practical knowledge and skills in food systems, public health, education, infrastructure, environmental sustainability, business enterprise, economics and management. During the 22-month program, these areas are covered through a combination of formal courses, seminars, special events and internship opportunities. Direct hands-on field experience in all areas is obtained through the mid-program field internship.
