This is a "hybrid" course, with synchronous, online meetings and once-monthly, on-campus meetings in Philadelphia, PA. Also, please note there is an additional $150 online course fee.

Spring 2020 on-campus meetings will be held on the following Fridays 9:30 AM - 1:00 PM and 2:00 PM - 5:30 PM (break for lunch from 1 - 2): January 17, February 21, March 27, and April 24. Class will meet online on Monday evenings from 7:45 PM - 8:45 PM.

Students will practice applying these principles to the range of decisions that public sector executives have to make in order to understand the trade-offs inherent in any public policy or program.
