Students who want to complete their MBA early in their career have the opportunity to select an MBA program designed specifically for recent college graduates and students with one to three years of experience who are seeking their first professional position. These programs are generally referred to as “early career” MBA programs because they provide early career students the full range of real professional experience, knowledge, and the career management tools needed to succeed as early career professionals.

Because there are differences within each type, please know that the differences I list below are generalizations for full time programs and may not always be true in every single instance.

Students who study public policy are driven to serve the public interest. They work in governments, non-profits, consulting firms and international organizations. They are social entrepreneurs, policy analysts, lead consultants to government and they hold public office. These graduates want to address the huge global challenges we face today. They use the same tools as their counterparts in business: quantitative analysis, economics, finance, management skills, etc., but they apply those tools to social problems. As a result, a public policy graduate is someone who can truly the change the world.
A public policy degree is a vital component when it comes to preparing future generations to tackle some of society’s biggest problems.
