The Public Management, Leadership and Policy major from The Ohio State University provides students with professional, managerial and analytical skills, along with specialized knowledge in a policy or management area.
The John Glenn College of Public Affairs is committed to helping inspire and develop students into leaders in the new generation of public and nonprofit professionals who can take on complex issues and make change a reality in civic life. Whether students see themselves tackling homelessness in their community, taming the growing national debt or creating educational opportunities for impoverished women around the globe, a degree from the Glenn College will prepare them with the skills, knowledge and experiences needed to get the job done.
Graduates of programs in the Glenn College are prepared for entry-level opportunities in management and/or analysis with government agencies and nonprofit organizations. According to the Partnership for Public Service, the federal government will need to hire 600,000 new employees over the next four years. The International City/County Management Association estimates that one-third of state and local government employees are over the age of 50, so state governments will also need entry-level talent in upcoming years. These figures indicate a need for young talent which the John Glenn College hopes to provide.
Glenn College graduates have entered the following positions:
- associate director for presidential personnel, the White House
- field organizer, Ohio Republican Party
- teaching fellow, KIPP Columbus
- legal analyst, Kohrman, Jackson & Krantz
