In the era of globalization, IPPAM’s Executive Education program is committed to fostering international collaboration and intercultural understanding through training policy makers and managers to critically access and evaluate the challenges they will face upon returning to their home countries.



Global Executive Continuing Education (GECE)

IPPAM has already equipped more than 1,000 participants (via degree program or executive education) from 40 countries with critical thinking and problem-solving skills necessary to address public policy issues in sectors such as public management, urban planning, health administration, education, and environmental sustainability.

When the University of Southern California opened its doors to 53 students in 1880, Los Angeles still lacked paved streets and electric lights. Today, our city is a global center for the arts, technology and intercontinental trade, and USC is a world-renowned private research institution enrolling more international students than any other U.S. university and operating an integrated academic medical center that serves more than a million patients each year.

The University of Southern California is one of the world’s leading private research universities. An anchor institution in Los Angeles, a global center for arts, technology and international trade, USC enrolls more international students than any other U.S. university and offers extensive opportunities for internships and study abroad. With a strong tradition of integrating liberal and professional education, USC fosters a vibrant culture of public service and encourages students to cross academic as well as geographic boundaries in their pursuit of knowledge. Today, USC is home to more than 38,000 students and nearly 3,500 full-time faculty, and is located in the heart of one of the biggest metropolises in the world.
