Master of Public Policy (MPP)
Unlike traditional, theory-based graduate programs, the Master of Public Policy (MPP) enables students to solve a broad range of real-world policy problems. This practical, hands-on and intensive program is unlike any other policy program in Canada.
Program components are guided by The School's three focus areas:
- Economic and Social Policy
- International Policy
- Energy and Environmental Policy
Students interested in pursuing a professional degree program in public policy that can be completed in 12 months through intensive study will find the Master of Public Policy (MPP) an ideal choice for a public policy role in the government, private sector, and not for profit realm. The School has graduates working in a diverse number of fields across Canada, and by joining the MPP program, you will have the ability to tie into this network of professionals. Students graduate with a comprehensive set of analytical and quantitative skills that enable them to formulate and implement policy across multiple business sectors. The School offers students a series of professional development sessions aimed at providing them the ability to obtain a paid summer internship and secure meaningful, policy related work upon graduation. Students regularly interact with MPP alumni employed in numerous fields while also developing professional contacts in Calgary and beyond.
