2015 MURP Graduates Report High Employment
December 13, 2016—Graduates who earned the Humphrey School of Public Affairs' Master of Urban and Regional Planning (MURP) in 2015 have made a successful transition into the workforce, according to data from Career Services at the Humphrey School.
All 27 respondents to a Career Services survey reported being employed in planning positions. A total of 31 MURP students graduated between January and December 2015.
Many graduates remained in Minnesota to accept planning positions in the Twin Cities metro area as well as Greater Minnesota, but the class as a whole spread to both the East and West Coasts and across the Atlantic.
At least 40 percent of graduates are working for city, county, and regional governments; 30 percent are employed at nonprofits; and the other 30 percent work in the private sector. Their job focuses range from environmental consulting and infrastructure planning to urban design and housing equity.
