French Business School HEC and Sciences Po Collaborate on New Dual Degree: MBA and Masters in Public Affairs

The dual MBA/MPA combines expertise in the public and private sectors

French business school HEC Paris is offering a new dual master's program with distinguished political institute Sciences Po.

The dual MBA and Master in Public Affairs (MPA) is a two-program, with each year dedicated to one of the two degrees.

This means that the MBA, which is taught in the second year, can be completed in one academic year instead of 18 months, using credits from the MPA.

The program combines managerial skills with the analytical skills offered by advanced political study, preparing students for positions in public or private sectors and the ability to operate comfortably in both.

Applications are now open for the Fall 2017 intake. In October the program will begin accepting applications for the 2018 intake.
