MastersofPublicAdministration.org was created in 2016, aspiring to be the ultimate resource for the Master of Public Administration degree program.
As one of the top MPA program sites out there, we try to keep the website as up-to-date as possible. Our data was most recently updated in the fall of 2020. However, if you find a program or school that needs updated, or you have feedback on our content, please contact us.
MastersofPublicAdministration.org is owned and operated by Enroll Education LLC, who has been building websites within higher education for nearly two decades.
In 2016, we created MastersofPublicAdministration.org to become one of the top resources focused entirely on the Master of Public Administration program. We have researched thousands of data points to understand which jobs and careers will be in demand over the next decade or more, and then builds websites to match people looking for a degree in that career field. Hence, us building a website focused entirely on graduate public administration education.
Our information is reviewed by top-tier professionals in the public administration and government sectors, and our content has been cited by numerous industry organizations and academic institutions.
Why Did We Create This Site?
MastersofPublicAdministration.org was created to help people looking to further their career with a graduate level public administration degree, or MPA. We have researched hundreds of schools of Public Policy or Public Administration to compile the data all into one place.
Our goal is to provide all of the information on Public Administration education in just one place, then provide you with the information you need to make a decision on your education. We write about:
- Regional, state-by-state data of the Public Administration industry, including different universities in that state that offer a MPA or MPP program. We then provide you with a way to get in contact with those universities.
- Detailed information and research on specific career paths and occupations one can have with a Master of Public Administration degree
- Specific MPA Programs and all of the accredited universities in the United States that offer the degree, based on NASPAA accredited programs
