Masters in Public Administration/Public Policy
Apply leading business practices to make a difference for the country
It's your career. Government is big business. Not-for-profits, too. Whether at the federal, state or local levels, the public sector provides many services often taken for granted by citizens. Public safety. Clean air and water. Health and human services. Education. Roads. Airports. And much, much more. As a consultant in Deloitte's Public Sector practice, you’ll help apply leading business principles so tax dollars are put to work with the most efficiency, accountability and transparency possible for our nation’s most needed services. Joining our team comes with unending opportunities to make a difference across a wide range of constituencies. How far will you take it?
For the people’s sake
As a consultant focused on the public sector, you’ll use your graduate degree and prior experience to help address a wide range of complex, challenging issues that face public and not-for-profit agencies, both day-to-day and long-term. Our practice areas include:
- Defense and Intelligence
- Finance and Administration
- Health and Human Services
- Homeland Security
- Law and Justice
In these practices, you’ll be part of a collaborative project team that provides our clients with solutions to help address their most critical challenges. In fact, you’ll help develop solutions and policies that can help transform the way government does business. While the work you do may not always be in the public’s view, you can rest assured that you’ve helped make a difference in their world and yours.
