Public institutions are faced with multiple challenges as they attempt to efficiently and effectively manage their finances and initiate new programs that are financially sustainable. The Martin School is among the top graduate programs in the nation in public financial management, and is one of very few offering an online MPFM degree program.
The Master of Public Financial Management (MPFM) program offers a professional degree that prepares students for careers as professionals in public and non-profit sectors. The program is offered 100% online and is designed for students with interests in public financial management, public sector accounting and auditing and other unique aspects of public finance.
