The Batten Approach

Of the 250-plus schools of public policy and administration in the U.S., Batten has the distinction of being the only one explicitly committed to teaching rigorous data analysis with hands-on policy experience and a foundation in the concepts of leadership — how it works, why context matters in decision-making and which actions lead to tangible results.

Our employers and partners know that while each Batten student and graduate is adept in their own way, some qualities are ubiquitous: relentless curiosity, purpose-driven professionalism, and an unwavering commitment to solving society’s most pressing problems.
