Chris Connolly
Master of Public Policy Programme Class of 2014

“The Academy of Government’s Master of Public Policy Programme taught me the hands-on skills necessary to be successful in thepolicy world. Learning not only through traditional academics, the AoG’s MPP programme provides a unique approach by bringing in practitioners to obtain first hand insight into various areas of policy, which gave me a well rounded understanding of the in and outs of policymaking. Ultimately, this led me to a role on the the Digital Engagement Team at Scottish Government. This team is giving hands-on support and guidance to policy professionals to learn to use digital tools to be more transparent, more collaborative and encouraging greater citizen engagement; helping colleagues reach and engage more people through the web and social media.”
