Abstract

Graduate programs in public administration are useful to society as a whole because the students who are taught through these programs will one day in the near future have an impact on public policy and its implementation, which can have a lasting effect on the world as a whole in a world that is so interconnected thanks to technology such as the internet. It is crucial to ensure that the graduate programs which are teaching students are complete and do not leave out any course material that will cause confusion or debate in the field of public administration, as this could have negative effects internationally. This paper aims to answer the question: What content gaps in major courses exist in (leading) graduate programs in public administration in China, the United States, and Canada? How do these gaps appear to influence alumni involvement in their university? The result of answering this research question will help universities who are seeking to add a program in the growingly popular area of study that is public administration to create a program that will successfully set up students for success and leave them wanting to support the school for future generations and help towards the betterment of society.
