“The EMPA has taught me to apply a much deeper description and understanding of the problem or problems, with a wider range of policy solutions in my ‘toolkit’ and a better ability to match them together.” - Shaun Whitmarsh, 2016 EMPA Valedictorian
Each year, we celebrate the outstanding achievements of our Executive Master of Public Administration (EMPA) students.
Subject prizes are awarded to the student who receives the highest score in each core subject.
The Valedictorian is the student who receives the highest mark in all completed subjects prior to the final subject (Work-Based Project) being assessed.
The Dean’s Prize is calculated by combining the student’s marks from all core subjects. The Dean’s Prize is the overall academic award.
