Managing Global Change: International Education & Global Public Management

Do you have the knowledge and skills to change the world? You can.


YPFP is thrilled to announce a new collaboration with the Columbia University School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA) and its innovative Global Executive Master of Public Administration program.

To kick-off this new collaboration, YPFP and Columbia University will be co-hosting a reception and discussion of several case studies in global public management. The case studies will explore public sector innovation in Brazil, India, and China on topics including urban management, public health, and education.

Discussants will include Prof. William B. Eimicke, Director of the Global Public Management Project at Columbia University, and Dr. Franklin Netto, Education Area Specialist at the Brazilian Embassy.


As part of this new partnership, Columbia University will also be offering exclusive access to lectures and case studies to YPFP members.


About Columbia University's Global Executive Master in Public Administration Program


Students participate in classes and work remotely over the course of 18 months and earn their MPA from Columbia University SIPA.

The Global Executive Master of Public Administration program empowers students to become effective and innovative managers by providing them a skills-based, international education. As cities become increasingly interconnected, our hybrid executive master’s program combines the expertise of Columbia University with proven solutions from international leaders in public, private, and non-profit management. Students examine real cases of innovation in health, education, and urban governance with leading experts from across Columbia University’s vast network of schools, bridging the gap between theory and application.

This innovative new program was developed in conjunction with Brazil's Lemann and Brava foundations ands uses new online tools and audiovisual case studies to deliver training in best practices in public management to public managers and their private sector partners partners around the world. The program features audiovisual case studies created in partnership with leading public management institutes in Brazil, India, Africa, and China.

Additional online information sessions will be hosted May 4, May 11, and May 25.
