There is a joint interest of APPAM academic and non-academic institutional members for policy and public affairs programs to produce graduates with marketable skills. However, there is little information available about the skills desired of new Masters-level and new Doctorate-level researchers employed by APPAM’s non-academic institutional members. APPAM is launching this data collection as a benefit to both our academic and non-academic members to help graduate programs improve the match between the skills of graduates and those desired by research firms.
Our goal is to share the survey results in aggregate at the Spring Conference/Institutional Reps Meeting in May, and we would greatly appreciate and value your participation and contributions. We will not identify responding institutions.
The survey should only take about 15 minutes of your time. We really appreciate your participation by April 15.
