The capstone assessment serves as a cumulative learning experience after the successful completion of all six courses and is a requirement to attain the Public Leadership Credential. Harvard Kennedy School faculty facilitate online activities for learners to demonstrate learning outcomes across all courses, including a new assignment that synthesizes PLC frameworks and tools and a review of key learning assignments completed in the courses. Upon successful completion of all six courses and the capstone assessment, learners will receive a credential that reflects the work they have completed.

The PLC also provides a potential pathway to the Mid-Career Master in Public Administration (MC/MPA), allowing those who complete the credential to apply to the MC/MPA Program and—if admitted—the opportunity to count PLC courses toward the MC/MPA degree to be completed in residence at Harvard Kennedy School.
