Degrees:MPM/14

In September 2014, I became the social media coordinator for the Liberal Party of Canada, after serving on the 2013 Trudeau leadership campaign. I also served as the social media coordinator for the Liberal Party of Canada during the most recent election campaign.

It was really exciting to be working for the Liberal Party, but I wasn’t sure how I would finish my master’s degree and work full-time simultaneously. I quickly found that the skills I was learning in the MPM program were immediately transferable to the work I was doing in politics, and helped me master both. These were skills it would have taken me years to learn on the job.

“The professors at MPM are the best part of the program. They are experts in each of their respective fields and I found I was coming away with incredible insider knowledge of the political world. It was amazing to learn from them.” – Melissa Rumble
