I am currently getting my MPA from Binghamton University. I am interested in hearing what opportunities you guys found with your degree after you completed!

If you're a member of this group, I am assuming that it's pretty likely you got an MPA. Our graduate fellow who is getting her MPA at George Washington is asking what type of job you got afterward. It would be fun to see the diversity of responses. I hope you'll share a bit about your career path post-MPA here:

Interesting question for this crowd: What should a new master's program in government contracting include to attract students?

NASPAA is seeking an MPA/MPP student for a paid summer internship, working on communications and outreach.  Applications will be accepted until the position is filled!
