Ready to Use Print and Web Advertisements

Following an analysis of survey research conducted by NASPAA’s Marketing Committee and staff, and in conjunction with a professional ad designer, we are creating a series of ads for your school to use in printed publications (newspapers, journals, newsletters) as well as on the web. 

Both the print and web ads are provided at no cost and are customizable to your school. This means with the print ads you can place your logo and other relevant school/degree information in the white/blank space that has been created in the bottom of the print ad. With the interactive web ad you are able to have the viewer end up on your school's website when they click 'find out more' at the end of the web ad.

We have created what we strongly believe is an engaging, exciting and informative ad series that your school can use to advertise your program, in turn contributing to a unified campaign for the MPA/MPP degrees . The ads that are available for you to use now subscribes to the concept of “Compel and Reward.” The visual message and headlines aim to attract attention to “compel” the reader/viewer onto the “reward”; namely, further info about the MPA/MPP degrees, links on the web and customized messages for each school.  Subsequent ads will also hold with the “Compel and Reward” concept.


Our slogan is GO PUBLIC!  We chose this as a way to invite and ask students to pursue our degrees and careers in public service; the slogan is incorporated into each ad to help maintain consistent branding and messaging.


Each ad has or will have an aspirational, visual element about an individual and his/her MPA/MPP career. A key element of this is to move beyond simple “informative advertisements” to those that provide emotional connectivity and resonance by providing relevant, cohesive, and visual information to the audience.

How did we choose the 4 MPA/MPP alumni in the print ads?

In the Spring of 2008 NASPAA requested alumni and recent graduates from our member schools across the country. We then asked each alumni who was interested in being in the ads to respond to a set of questions so we could select 4 candidates who could best represent the diversity of our programs. The 4 MPA/MPP alumni who were selected are highlighted as representative of our degrees and as such do not mention a specific school or the particular degree they pursued. (We wanted to give you greater flexibility and choice in which ad works best for you). We also highlighted key employment areas such as nonprofit, government, international work and environmental careers as a further way to communicate the benefits of our degrees.

WEB ADS

You have a choice of two interactive web ads that have been created in standard web sizes.
One is a banner size (725 X 90) that fits across the top of a web page/site.
The other is square (300 X 250) and can be placed elsewhere on a web page.

You should have the web/ad manager who is helping you (from your school or the website where you are placing the ad) link the MPA/MPP Ad to your schools website. This way when the ‘Find Out More’ phrase pops up at the end of the ad people can click through and be directed to your school’s web site.
