The community open house will take place in The Conference Center at Mercer on the Mercer County Community College campus, where the EMPA program will offer classes beginning with the next cohort of admitted students in January 2014. The deadline for applications is December 14.
Designed for working professionals, the Rutgers-Camden EMPA program is taught in hybrid format with both classroom-based and online instruction. All face-to-face classes will meet on Saturday mornings on the West Windsor campus.
Dr. Angie McGuire, EMPA program director will be present to answer questions.
“The EMPA’s new location at Mercer offers an accessible, central location for individuals, who need to balance work and personal responsibilities while earning a degree that will advance their careers,” said McGuire.
The EMPA is aimed at mid-to upper-level managers in the public and nonprofit sectors with five or more years of administrative or managerial experience. It provides professionals with skills and knowledge designed to enhance leadership capabilities.
The 42-credit program uses the cohort model, with enrollment limited to 20 persons. Degree requirements can be completed in two years, including two one-week summer residencies. Up to nine credits may be awarded for professional experience.
Courses cover such topics as public management, leadership and communication, policy analysis, human resource management, organizational behavior, ethics, law and public policy, and financial management.
Courses are taught by Rutgers faculty and distinguished practitioners, and feature timely, relevant information that students can put into practice.
The EMPA program is offered by the Rutgers-Camden Department of Public Policy and Administration (DPPA).
