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!
As someone who has worked with government and is currently in an MPP program, I'm always interested by the intersection of academics and practitioners and how much bearing the two have on one another: http://www.govloop.com/profiles/blogs/bridging-the-gap-between-acad...
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:
NASPAA has posted the updated list of accredited MPA/MPP programs.

Interesting question for this crowd: What should a new master's program in government contracting include to attract students? http://www.govloop.com/forum/topics/what-should-a-new-master-s-prog...
