Robert M. La Follette School of Public Affairs

Client-based projects are one element of the La Follette School's Introduction to Public Management (PA 878) course. Under the direction of a faculty member, students work in groups to assess a clearly defined, client-submitted management challenge or issue. 

During the semester-long course, students deepen their appreciation of and the importance of public management in democratic governance, enhance their ability to think analytically about problems of public management, and enhance their skills for making good arguments concerning how public management issues might be addressed.
