Emma Kristensen, a 2017 graduate of the Master of Political Management program.

 

There are many advantages to studying in Canada’s capital: the proximity to federal government departments, political offices, non-governmental organization headquarters, and embassies.

But MPM student Emma Kristensen may have landed the best gig of them all: working in the Prime Minister’s Office for the summer.

“I was selected for an internship in the PMO Operations Department, which plans the logistics for the Prime Minister’s international and domestic travel,” says Kristensen. “It’s a great opportunity to put my MPM skills into practice every day.”

Kristensen is one of many students in the Master of Political Management program who are working at the highest levels of Canada’s government. You can read more about them here.
