September 24, 2013

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.

Global public policy leaders must develop and implement solutions in an increasingly complex, challenging, and changing environment. New actors and influences—both local and global—are emerging on the policy scene, and the need for flexibility and innovation in policy processes and solutions is increasingly clear.

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.

David Coen, Director of the School of Public Policy, Head of the Department of Political Science, and Professor of Public Policy at University College London
