NASPAA Accreditation

The Pace University Master of Public Administration (MPA) Program has received accreditation from the Network of Schools of Public Policy, Affairs, and Administration (NASPAA), the recognized accreditor of master’s degree programs in those fields. Earning the honor for the first time, the Pace MPA program is accredited for seven years, NASPAA’s maximum accreditation length.

“The NASPAA accreditation is a culmination of the efforts and dedication of our faculty and staff, who are committed to advancing the quality of our MPA program,” said Associate Professor and former MPA Director Gina Scutelnicu-Todoran, PhD. “It is a testament to Pace’s MPA program’s substantial conformity with the highest academic and professional standards in the discipline, enabling us to meet our mission of serving students in the New York City metropolitan area, the state of New York, the US, and internationally.”

Beginning in fall 2023, the MPA program will also conduct in-person classes on the Elisabeth Haub School of Law campus in White Plains.
