The masters of public administration program

The Masters of Public Administration (MPA) program at the University of Michigan-Dearborn, prepares leadersfor educational, government, and nonprofit organizations. The interdisciplinary and experimental nature of the program requiresboth structure and flexibility in course development, offerings, and in classroom instruction. The Masters of Public Administrationis a 30 (minimum) credit hour program divided into three parts: (1) Core and Information Systems, (2) Specialty Courses, (3)Internships, and (4) Assessment Seminar.

The courses are cross-listed between educational administration and public administration. The corecourses are: Introduction to Administration; Principalship/Leadership and Administration; Administration ofHuman Resources; School Budgeting and Finance/Administration of Financial Resources; and Information Systems and Statistics forAdministrators. All MPA students (educational administration, nonprofit, and public sector) are required to complete anAssessment Seminar near the conclusion of their program. The seminar is a capstone course and is structured to permit thestudents in the program to synthesize their specialized coursework and to examine problems common to the various specialties.

The Government/Public Sector program requires completion of the MPA Core, specialty requirements, electivesappropriate to administration in the public sector, and the MPA Assessment Seminar. Students must select 13 credits of courses fromthe specialty areas of leadership, finance, human resources, planning, analysis, and evaluation with approval of a public sectorfaculty advisor. The program is structured to follow the National Association of Schools of Public Affairs and Administration(NASPAA) guidelines. An internship may be required if the student is unable to present evidence of prior experience in publicadministration.

The program in Nonprofit Leadership requires completion of the MPA core as described above, specialtyrequirements, electives appropriate to the Nonprofit Leadership Program, and the MPA Assessment Seminar. The design of the programis consistent with the guidelines established by the American Society of Association Executives. A Nonprofit LeadershipCertificate is available and is consistent with the certification process established by the American Society of AssociationExecutives and has been endorsed by the Michigan Society of Association Executives. Eligibility for the certificate requirescompletion of the MPA Core, eight (8) credit hours specialty requirements: Public Relations for the Nonprofit and PublicSectors, Fundraising, Strategic Planning and Needs Assessment, and Program Evaluation. The remaining electives are chosen withapproval of the nonprofit faculty advisor. An internship with a nonprofit organization may be required if the student is unable topresent evidence of prior experience.

Eligibility for the MPA degree and certificate in Educational Administration includes completion ofthe core courses, specialty requirements in school and community relations, legal and regulatory issues, curriculum deliberation anddevelopment, program evaluation, applications of technology fororganizational administration, and an internship in elementary or secondary school administration. Students must also complete theMPA Assessment Seminar. A 20 credit hour certificate-only program is available to students already holding a masters' degree anddesiring a certificate in elementary or secondary school administration. The program consists of the MPA core (minus thestatistics course), plus administrative law, school/community relations, curriculum development, and an internship. A certificate in CentralOffice Administration is also available. Candidates for this certificate are required to complete an additional 15 credit hoursbeyond the MPA degree or 20 credit hour certificate-only program in appropriate course work including Strategic Planning and NeedsAssessment, Labor Relations, Fund Accounting, and Policy Analysis&Development along with appropriate electives from the public administration and/or education graduate degree offerings withapproval of the educational administration advisor.

can someone help me with some logarithmic and exponential equations.
Jeffrey Reply
sure. what is your question?
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
I got X =-6
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
oops. ignore that.
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?
is it a question of log
I rally confuse this number And equations too I need exactly help
But this is not salma it's Faiza live in lousvile Ky I garbage this so I am going collage with JCTC that the of the collage thank you my friends

or infinite solutions?
The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

Yes, Nanotechnology has a very fast field of applications and their is always something new to do with it...

good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world
Prasenjit Reply
At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.

the Beer law works very well for dilute solutions but fails for very high concentrations. why?
