“The Masters of Political Management (MPM) program at Carleton is a valuable one-of-a kind degree. It has an accomplished, hands-on, and supportive faculty, engaging speakers and learning opportunities, and a vast cross-partisan network to grow political minds. MPM provides insight into policy issues, campaign management, political advocacy, and government & legislative processes. The program prepares candidates for a variety of environments including in the offices of elected officials, the public service, and government relations positions at public affairs firms, non-profits, and corporations. Nowhere else in Canada can you better learn the ins and outs of public decision-making. I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to further their understanding of Canada’s political landscape.” – Ryan Fedurco
