Graduates of the UMass Boston Public Policy Program hold top-level professional positions such as:
According to the Association for Public Policy Analysis & Management (APPAM),
"Graduates differ in the organization setting in which they work. Some graduates work for various levels of government, others work in non-profit organizations or in the private sector for consulting firms, for example. Some graduates focus on a specific issue areas, or others are generalists who work on a variety of issues. Some graduates work on issues domestically and others internationally. Some ... move back and forth between the public, private and nonprofit sector, or between an international setting and a domestic one. They can do this because the general public policy degree provides one with a set of research and analytical, and management skills that are often transferable across sectors, and often across issue areas. Graduates also differ in the type of work they do. Some conduct research on public policy issues. Others help implement various programs. Still others work to advocate positions on certain issues or lobby for specific legislation. Some teach in public policy schools."
