The La Follette School of Public Affairs is seeking client-based projects for its Introduction to Public Management course (PA 878). Students in the graduate-level course work in teams to complete the projects under the direction of faculty member David Ehrlich.
The priority deadline for public-, nonprofit-, or private-sector organizations to submit applications is Friday, January 10, 2020. Alumni are encouraged to apply.
Based on the client's request, each group produces a written analysis and presentation. Topics reflect the client's interests related to a management challenge or issue. There is no cost to clients.
The most important element for assessing the viability of public management projects is a clear definition of the problem or issue.
