Graduation Year: 2013
Current Position(s): Senior Planner, Policy Development at TransLink & Political Science Instructor at Kwantlen Polytechnic University
My two years as a student in SFU’s MPP program were enhanced by our cohort of students who became close, and in some cases, life-long friends. Now, years later, we’ve expanded into a fantastic network of supportive and well-connected policy professionals eager to see each other succeed.
In MPP, I gained a set of skills that are absolutely foundational to the work I do everyday. I learned how to approach, define, and deconstruct problems and action a rigorous process to make decisions, weigh trade-offs, and communicate recommendations. This skillset is tangible, actionable, and practical—and completely transferrable to a variety of career choices that require strategic thinking and decision making.
