Move Chicago Forward.

Never has policy been so relevant.

An understanding of public policy and analysis is increasingly important to take on the challenges—and unlock the opportunities—facing both the public and private sectors in our city and around the world.

Business leaders need to understand the impact of policy on their business. Social entrepreneurs are leveraging technology to improve outcomes in education, healthcare, and other areas of the social sphere. Nonprofit leaders need to speak the language of policy and demonstrate program effectiveness.

Demand is growing for the kind of evidence-based approach Harris Public Policy is known for.

Introducing the Harris Public Policy Evening Master's Program @ 1871

The new Harris Public Policy Evening Master's Program at 1871 was designed specifically for Chicago's emerging leaders and mid-career professionals to help you lead your organization and make a measurable impact on the city and the world.

The Evening Master’s Program is an ideal fit for emerging leaders in business, law, consulting, or government who need to gain a broader perspective on public policy as they take on more leadership responsibility as well as those in the social sphere who want the fundamental understanding of public policy and analytics to complement their experience.

Classes will be taught on nights and weekends at 1871 at the Merchandise Mart in downtown Chicago, making the program adaptable to work, family and other responsibilities. Students can complete their degree in four quarters of study while working full-time.

And best of all: as a rising professional, there's no need to worry about taking the GRE or GMAT. No score required.
