Welcome Global EMPA Students

Getting Started and Registration Guide for Executive MPA, Global Public Policy and Management (Global EMPA) students

Welcome to NYU Wagner and University College London's (UCL) Global EMPA program!

We're so glad you'll be joining us this fall, and we hope that you are excited, too.

We want your transition to Wagner to be as smooth as possible. With that in mind, we've created these step-by-step instructions with all the important information you need to start off well as a new student.

You can work through the steps at your own pace, but we ask that you read them in the order they are provided since each step builds on the one before it.

After completing the steps, you will have:

  • Become familiar with the Student Portal
  • Registered for the correct courses to stay on track in your program
  • Signed up for all mandatory orientation activities
  • Considered the quantitative refresher tools at your disposal
  • Taken the mandatory Academic Oath

Don't forget about the Getting Started Checklist that was provided to you when you were first admitted to the program! It is a list of important month-by-month tasks to complete as you get ready for Wagner.
