TROY - Troy University's online Master of Public Administration degree program has been recognized among the top 50 best programs in the nation by online business education and career guided, Top Management Degrees.
The ranking combines the results of two of the most influential higher education rankings in order to give a well-rounded ranking of the available programs. The data was additionally calculated with each school's average graduate school tuition and average early career salary to factor in a return-on-investment on the program. Finally, each school was ranked on an accreditation from the NASPAA, the highest recognized global accrediting body of master's degree programs in the fields of public policy, public affairs and public administration.
"Public administration is a complex field that mixes business, policies and public impact," said Tammie Cagle, editor of Top Management Degrees. "An online master's degree in public administration can provide the critical preparation for upcoming public and nonprofit leaders and is flexible enough to fit into the complex schedules of today's professionals."
