Given the broad interdisciplinary skills of a Public Policy degree from Georgia Tech, our graduates can apply for much more than “Policy Analyst” position openings. With proper course selection, our graduates can serve a variety of roles:
- research (research assistant, research associate, research analyst, research surveyor, director of research, etc.),
- public administration (city manager, manager/director of community or economic development, governmental affairs director, budget analyst, program evaluator, etc.),
- consulting (organizational planning and development specialists, workforce development program managers, environmental auditor, program evaluator, energy analyst, regulatory affairs officer, and more),
- corporate (sustainability director, governmental affairs director, compliance analyst, and organizational analyst, and more) and
- academic (professor, technology transfer manager, federal relations director, community relations director, assistant director of sponsored programs, and more).
