Many universities conduct public administration continuing education that is training focused rather than degree focused, such as that found in MPA and DPA degrees. However, continuing education has been little studied--quantitatively or qualitatively--despite its importance to many universities. The current exploratory study aims to provide an initial database. It looks at types of training, amount of training, number of enrollees, training partners, personnel, importance of continuing education compared to other functions such as MPA programs or research, and perceptions about what the top programs are.
