Public Management

Public Management is one of the subfields of political science and politics on the whole.

People negotiate daily. As a matter of fact negotiation happens several times a day. Despite the frequency of negotiations few people know how to negotiate well and achieve the most optimal outcomes. Many people believe that good negotiators are born. However, in reality anyone can improve their negotiation skills very considerably through training. At the Center for Public Policy and Competitiveness, we teach a negotiation framework that has proved effective both locally and globally. In the current public policy context leaders often need to manage change and this requires incorporating of multiple stakeholders interests which requires excellent negotiation skills. The challenges faced in negotiating with Senators, Governors, Executive Directors and Union staff have one unique technical difficulty- your opponent in one issue may be an ally in the next. Oftentimes public meetings are contentious or participants are deeply divided along issues of resources, values or even identity. Diffusing contentious situations and arriving at a workable solution is both an art and a science that requires a specific set of skills and practice. Individuals involved in analysis, formulation and implementation of public policy need to know the fundamentals of negotiations. They not only need to have the goal in mind, but they must also know how they will achieve the goal. Reaching the goal requires them to know how to say “no” while maintaining a relationship, how to close a deal on time-not too early nor too late, how to present the main interests clearly, how to balance transparency, public disclosure...

Masters in Public Management. The Master of Public Policy (MPP) degree is the recognized professional degree in the field of public policy analysis. The MPP degree provides students with education and training that prepares them for opportunities in professional positions in a wide variety of organizations, including federal, state, and local governments, private business, research institutes, think tanks, nonprofit organizations, community advocacy groups, foundations, and professional and trade associations. Public policy education at GW provides students with the ability to think clearly and analytically about social and economic problems and public policy. Students not only learn the basic analytical and methodological tools to engage in policy analysis; they also develop an understanding of the political processes through which policy is made and the social, economic and historical context in which problems arise and are addressed. Each student chooses a policy field that serves as an area in which he/she can apply these skills and gain substantive knowledge. However, the program is generalist rather than highly specialized; it provides students with the ability to quickly and successfully come to grips with policy problems across a wide range of issues. The MPP program is interdisciplinary; the course of studies focuses on problems, policy alternatives, and solutions rather than on methodologies and approaches that are associated with a single academic discipline. Students have the opportunity to combine academic training with a wide array of practical experiences available in our nation's capital. The faculty have extensive professional contacts to aid students in job placement.... [-]
