The School of Public Policy & Management at Heinz College is rated as one of the world's top public affairs graduate schools. We offer a wide range of innovative degree programs in public interest fields taught by a faculty known for their cutting-edge research and innovative teaching techniques. It's a grad school unlike any in the world.
Heinz College continually stays a step ahead of changes in public affairs, technology, and management education. We were the first public affairs school to understand the importance of technology as both a management tool and policy area. Our interdisciplinary approach fosters exceptional programs in emerging issues in the public interest, as well as in well-established managerial and policy areas. Our programs focus on critical niche areas, such as the arts, entertainment, the public sector, and healthcare—those that are concerned about the public good.
We offer a dynamic environment that includes a challenging, skills-based curriculum as well as a diverse student population. Policy analysis, management, research methods, economics, information systems, and specific policy topics are all prominently featured in the curriculum.
