Master of Public Policy Programme Class of 2014

“Currently I work in government relations at an information and communications trade association in Washington D.C. In my role I frequently engage with member companies and policy officials to facilitate discussions and achieve policy goals. The Master of Public Policy (MPP) degree at the University of Edinburgh provided me with the fundamental skills to be successful in this position and beyond. Academy courses focused on expanding our knowledge of the entirety of the policymaking process and also developing the practical and analytical skills necessary to navigate it. Policy practitioners, group discussions, and group projects were staples in each class, proving us further opportunities to engage with policymakers and our peers. Students were able to apply these skills further during our capstone project, providing us with additional exposure and invaluable experience at a policymaking organization. While doing my capstone at the Electoral Reform Society, I was able to work on a research paper analyzing the role of citizens in the constitutional future of the United Kingdom following the Scottish independence referendum.”
