TAMPA, Fla., July 18, 2012 — A Master of Public

marketability of professionals committed to public service.

U.S. News University Directory has made finding the right

easier for students, providing the latest information in one
convenient, online location. This is especially beneficial
in public administration, a diverse field with a wealth of
specializations. Thanks to U.S. News University Directory,
sifting through all the options is now easier than ever for
motivated professionals with excellent leadership skills and
a passion for creating and implementing public policy.
“Serving the public good is both a privilege and a calling.
Our society will always need smart, caring people in these
roles,” said Matthew Speer, Director of Sales and Marketing
for U.S. News University Connection. “That’s why it makes
sense for us to provide talented candidates with the
information they need to make informed decisions on how best
to continue their education.”

academia. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) cites a
number of professions that favor MPA graduates. For example,
healthcare management and regional/urban planning are two
fields growing at a rate faster than the national average
for all occupations. As of May 2010, the median annual
salary for the former was $84,270, and $63,040 for the
