Go Global: MPA/MPP Degrees Make a World of Difference
The MPA faculty are committed to helping students pursue meaningful career opportunities. Through the development of internship opportunities, networking with MPA graduates, and established working relationships with federal, state, and local government agencies, faculty assist students in identifying potential job opportunities. Approximately two-thirds of the program's enrolled students work in the public sector and so provide faculty with additional contacts. In addition the university's Office of Cooperative Education and the Office of Career Services develop and identify numerous internship and job opportunities in federal, state, and local government agencies, as well as opportunities in nonprofit organizations.
Here are several useful web sites for employment opportunities after graduation:
