If you are looking to hire someone with the skills and aptitude needed to conduct statistical analysis, dive into a complex research project, write clear and concise memos and reports, perform program evaluations, analyze financial information, and understand the political and economic factors that drive public policy and organizational management, we invite you to partner with us.

Our students complete a core curriculum providing a broad base of skills in management, quantitative analysis, budgeting, policy analysis, and program evaluation. These skills can be used in any variety of organizations committed to solving our society’s most complicated problems. Students in our MPA program are required to complete a 400-hour internship. This experience supplements and guides students’ career interests related to specific policy areas and skills. Currently the Evans School offers 8 policy areas of emphasis. For more information about the Evans School’s commitment to diversity, and its impact on our teaching approach to policy, please see our Blueprint for Diversity.

Evans School MPA students and graduates are highly skilled and eager to contribute their talents. We invite employers to engage with us in the following ways:

This is not a job fair, but a chance for current students to build relationships and learn about the culture and opportunities at federal agencies. The event is free and all federal employees are welcome.
