The University of Maryland School of Public Policy will offer an in-person, for-credit (and a parallel, non-credit) international course on evaluation-based, performance monitoring and management. Classroom instruction will be provided by university instructors and guest faculty—complemented by consultations with officials of the Italian Government, international organizations, and NGOs.

Classes will be held at the Milan campus of the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore as well as other locations in Milan and Rome.

This course is part of the University of Maryland’s new “Certificate of Professional Studies in Program Planning, Monitoring, and Evaluation.” As such, it is designed as a three-credit, stand-alone course for doctoral, master’s level, and advanced undergraduate students studying social policy-related subjects such as economics, education, international development, political science/governance, public administration, public health, public policy, social welfare, sociology, and urban planning.

Mid-career professionals may also take the course individually or as part of the four-course Certificate. There is also a non-credit option for mid-career professionals who are interested in learning the material and attending classes, but who do not want to complete the graded coursework.

Applications will be accepted through January 2, 2023. A full description of the course can be found by clicking on the course announcement below. For now, those interested in registering should contact Michael Horlick in the SPP Office of Executive Programs.
