This program (MIPA) has three specializations:

(3) Global and Comparative International Public Administration

(4) Master’s (MSc) in International Public Policy

Academic Presentation

Online Master in International Public Health

Public Administration is often studied from a national-central perspective. Few programs are truly international in scope so as to fully prepare graduates for global civil service careers that will engage a wide variety of public policy challenges, including public health issues, energy policy, e-government, etc. To answer this challenge, EUCLID and CAFRAD have designed a comprehensive and challenging online master’s degree in international public health (MSc) curriculum, which is presented here with full documentation of syllabus and faculty resources, we well as total tuition. This documentation will enable students globally to determine if this program is best for them.

This unique Master’s degree focuses on the practical and policy aspects of public administration rather than the advancement of academic knowledge or theoretical knowledge.

The MIPA was primarily designed to serve civil servants of EUCLID’s and CAFRAD’s Participating States, but it is also open to the general public as an excellent route to pursue a career within government bodies and inter-governmental organizations.

Thanks to its low tuition and institutional relationships, it is expected to be of special interest to African students but also globally to students and professional interested in comparative public administration focused on sustainable economic development.
