These skills are given practical application in the second year Capstone project: an intense group-work consultancy exercise in which students advise a major national or international, public or private sector organisation on a current policy challenge. Each MPA stream also offers further specialist training, a wide range of option courses, and the opportunity to prepare a policy-oriented dissertation.

In addition to the MPA?s core training in political and economic analysis, students take courses in public management, and public budgeting and financial management. This MPA is particularly suitable for careers in public management, public sector consulting, and governance related work in international organisations or think tanks.
