Hire Globally-minded Policy Practitioners from UBC’s New Graduate Program
We are happy to announce a new pilot co-op program with the UBC Master of Public Policy and Global Affairs (MPPGA). The first cohort of students from this master’s program will be available for co-op work placements this Summer.
MPPGA students have a broad skillset that combines scientific data analysis with policy tools, economic understanding, communication skills, and creativity. In addition, they are learning from distinguished faculty who are leading contemporary Asia Pacific experts.
MPPGA co-op students are only available for 4 months (May-August), so now is an ideal time if you are looking for a globally-minded policy practitioner to join your team.
