The Master of Public Administration (MPA) (Enhanced) is a flagship degree of the Melbourne School of Government. An inter-disciplinary and globally-focused degree, the MPA (Enhanced) is for leaders from the community, corporate and public sectors. The MPA (Enhanced) draws on the expertise across the University of Melbourne to develop the skills and competencies of professionals who operate in increasingly complex governing environments where challenges cut across disciplinary, organisational, sectoral, jurisdictional and geographical boundaries. The MPA (Enhanced) offers participants the opportunity to combine disciplinary expertise in political science, public administration and management, law, and business and economics with professional expertise in areas such as ethics, evidence, and management. Participants will mix theory and practice to address the complex challenges of management in practice through an interactive learning experience, combining individual and team-based learning opportunities that explore a range of contemporary issues.

Students in the MPA (Enhanced) have the opportunity to develop specialisations by selecting electives from across the member faculties of the Melbourne School of Government.
