Online Master of Public Policy and Leadership

The Pepperdine University School of Public Policy’s online Master of Public Policy and Leadership (MPPL) program puts the “public” back into public policy, focusing on servant leadership and viewpoint diversity. The program’s cross-sector emphasis prepares you for roles in private, nonprofit, or government careers. Its inventive design offers multiple certificate options in a stackable format. 

Students will learn to apply innovative, ethically-grounded strategies to lead change and progress in educational systems and take an innovative approach to community building that preserves resources, integrates smart technologies, and protects citizens. With an online MPPL from the School of Public Policy, you will be well-positioned to work across differences and sectors to create sustainable policy solutions that maintain a sense of humanity.

The thing that was so refreshing to me when I found Pepperdine was that they thought of public policy in an expansive way. I think the most valuable contribution that Pepperdine made for me was intellectual dexterity. You have a wide enough variety of courses and a wide enough variety of professors that you start learning a number of different ways of thinking.”
