Tell prospective students a bit about how your studies at York helped you to get where you are today.
Prior to taking the MPPAL, I had worked for the City of Toronto, the Ontario Public Service, and the Federal Public Service, at various stages in my employment career. However, before the MPPAL, I didn’t know how it [i.e. government] all worked.
Within the context of practical exercises, the MPPAL provided me with a solid foundation for understanding the intersection between public policies, government, and the law. Furthermore, the MPPAL provided strong links to theoretical sources of knowledge and a diverse faculty who are experts in their respective fields. Finally, the MPPAL opened up a diverse network of skilled, passionate, and dynamic alumni; a group that will continue to grow and strengthen.
