Trachtenberg School Jumped to #10 Best Overall School of Public Affairs, Improves Some of its 9 Specialty Ratings
TSPPPA is now ranked as the #10 best overallschool of public affairs by U.S. News and World Report. These rankings are determined by a reputational vote of leaders of schools accredited by NASPAA. They indicate the excellence we see in the TSPPPA community every day, for example, in the promise and quality of our students, the expertise and dedication of our faculty and staff, and the Tberg alumni making change across the globe. Our biggest jump this year was for Urban Policy, which went up eight spots to #10.
