mpahopeful Posted June 19, 2015 Share Posted June 19, 2015 Hi all, I am thinking of applying to a number of masters programs this coming fall. I have a strong math background, and I am looking for analytical leadership training that would open doors to many different career options globally (in either the public or the private sector). An acquaintance recently told me about Harvard Kennedy School's MPA/ID program as a great option that offers quantitative and conceptual rigor + super diverse student body, and I am interested in learning more about it. I have read its website and done some quick Googling, but I was hoping folks on this board could help me get a more 'real' sense around the program: Could people comment on the following: 1) How competitive is the admissions process for this program? (I have heard that it's the most difficult to get into among all the programs at HKS?) 2) How is the caliber of the student body? In terms of raw intellect as well as professional track record? 3) What are the major pros and cons of doing this program vs. an MPP / MPA / MBA? 4) How well reputed is this program? Thanks in advance for your help. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
