NYU Wagner, University College London, and their newly launched joint Global Executive MPA degree program, will present a panel of senior policy experts from intersecting fields and organizations to discuss how the global public policy landscape is changing, how they see its future, and what that implies for the skills and backgrounds that practitioners will need. The discussion, free and open to the public, will take place on Monday, September 30, at 6 p.m. at NYU Washington DC, Abramson Family Auditorium, 1307 L Street, NW, Washington, D.C.

That is why NYU Wagner and University College London have launched a Global Executive MPA degree program, which will educate and prepare experienced leaders to tackle the world's most challenging issues in this new global context.
