Beyond the Classroom

As a Global EMPA student you will participate in building a strong community rich with learning and growth opportunities outside of the classroom.

Executive Coaching

You'll meet with and learn from an executive coach in the first year of the program. The EMPA coach helps you not only reflect on your goals, but also carve out a targeted career path to have the greatest impact in public service. 

Professional Development LunchTime Program

Periodically throughout the fall semester, you'll participate in a co-curricular lecture and communications skills workshop program. These private events are exclusively designed for the EMPA cohort and lunch is served.

Career Services

All EMPA students have access to NYU Wagner’s Office of Career Services and UCL's Careers office, which provide professional resources, guidance, and connections. You can partake in networking events, career advisement, workshops, and job postings, as well as connect to the global NYU Wagner and UCL alumni network of professionals.


The Global EMPA faculty from NYU Wagner and UCL provide advisement for students throughout their program. You will develop an individualized learning plan over the summer, prior to the start of classes and you'll also meet as a cohort for group advisement sessions.
