4 Welcome Message from Jack Mintz, Director and Palmer Chair of Public Policy Dear Students, As the Director of The School of Public Policy, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2014/2015 academic year. This will be the fourth year that The School offers its Master of Public Policy (MPP) program and it is already one of the most sought-after programs of its kind, attracting top students from across Canada and abroad. The early success of the MPP has helped The School establish itself as the flagship school of public policy in Canada. We have designed a program that will provide you with exceptional instruction and a highly valued credential. It is a program that builds key competencies that will train you to hit the ground running upon graduation. Your instructors are all leading policy experts, and you will benefit from exciting guest lecturers from around the world who will share global insights into policy development. The networking opportunities you will have outside of the classroom are truly unique and I hope you take full advantage of them. I look forward to working with all of you in the classroom and seeing you at the various events we have planned for the upcoming year. And, I encourage you to start thinking now about the role you will play either in business or government. This program is not just about training you for a job it is about creating a cadre of skilled and focused individuals who will shape Canada s policy future. You, and your counterparts in future years, will leave a mark on Canada that will be tangible and meaningful to all our futures. Sincerely, Jack Mintz Director and Palmer Chair 2 The School of Public Policy Master of Public Policy Student Handbook 2014/2015
5 Welcome Message from Robert Mansell, Academic Director Dear Students, It is with great excitement and pleasure that I welcome you to the Master of Public Policy program in The School of Public Policy. We invested considerable resources to develop a first-class program focused on providing students with a valuable and exciting learning experience. We started, in 2008, with an extensive survey of students to determine what they wanted to get out of a Master of Public Policy program. We also asked employers in government and business what they wanted to see in graduates. What we heard was a desire for a professional degree program that stressed an interdisciplinary approach and the development of a broad range of applied skills: for effective communication, sound analysis based on empirical evidence, identification of trade-offs, assessment of cost effectiveness and political feasibility, and innovative and reliable recommendations with respect to important questions of public policy. We have built the MPP program to incorporate all of these elements. You will benefit from exceptional instructors, access to many learning resources and special lectures, and one-on-one interactions with numerous policy leaders and practitioners from government, business and non-government organizations. And, the capstone project will allow you to put into practice all of your acquired skills, making you stand out to employers and others important in your career development. We are committed to making the MPP as valuable an experience as possible for you. Learning truly is a two-way street. Therefore, please do not hesitate to come speak with me if you have concerns as you progress through the program, or if you would like to offer suggestions for improvement. Again, welcome to The School of Public Policy and the Master of Public Policy program. Sincerely, Robert Mansell Academic Director The School of Public Policy Master of Public Policy Student Handbook 2014/2015 3

17 Program Objectives The goal of the Master of Public Policy Program is to train policy professionals who will find leadership positions in government and the private sector. Our students pursue careers in the civil service and areas of the private sector that involve public policy analysis. This includes corporate and private government relations experts, media, public relations experts, analysts for non-governmental organizations (NGOs), private consultants, pollsters, etc. The MPP program fosters in students an appreciation of the importance of effective institutions, efficient regulation, and the role that markets play in democracies. Students learn to communicate effectively; make judgments based on empirical evidence; recognize the underlying self-interest of those advocating policy positions; identify trade-offs; assess cost effectiveness and political feasibility; and, in general, learn to make well-considered recommendations with respect to important questions of public policy. The School of Public Policy Master of Public Policy Student Handbook 2014/
18 Program Expectations The Master of Public Policy is a professional-degree program. Students are representatives of The School of Public Policy and, therefore, are expected to carry themselves with the utmost professionalism both inside and outside the classroom. This includes ensuring punctuality for all lectures, events or other MPP-related commitments, and the responsible use of online media. Additional provisions concerning student conduct and expectations are outlined in the Academic Regulations section of the University of Calgary s Graduate Calendar. School Events The School hosts a variety of Community Outreach events year-round that attract global policy experts and practitioners. All School-hosted events are free for MPP students. As a feature of the MPP program, The School also puts on a Speaker Series specifically for students in the program. These talks feature prominent policy figures in an interactive environment. Previous MPP Speaker Series guests have included: Hon. Christy Clark, Premier, Government of British Columbia Hon. Ted Menzies, Minister of State (Finance) Gaetan Caron, Chair and CEO, National Energy Board Ambassador Tim Martin, Canadian Ambassador to Colombia Dr. John Rook, President and Chief Executive Officer, Calgary Homeless Foundation Jean René Halde, President and Chief Executive Officer, Business Development Bank of Canada Jim Ellis, Chief Executive Officer, Alberta Energy Regulator Deborah Yedlin, Business Columnist, Calgary Herald 16 The School of Public Policy Master of Public Policy Student Handbook 2014/2015
19 Attendance Expectations There is no better way to learn about public policy than to listen to, and exchange ideas with, public policy practitioners. For this reason, The School provides students with a tremendous opportunity to network with policy experts from business, government and the community. Students are expected to attend as many events as possible throughout the academic year as part of their training. Because the MPP Speaker Series is intended specifically for students in the program, instructors may choose to incorporate content from this talks into quizzes, assignment, ect. Event Registration Students can expect to receive invitations to all events by . In order to attend a particular event, students must register for the event by responding to the invitation sent to them. Simply showing up at the event without having confirmed attendance will not be permitted. Some events will have limited availability to students. For these events, students must RSVP to the event invitation, and the Events Committee will decide which students get to attend. Selected students will be notified by . The School of Public Policy Master of Public Policy Student Handbook 2014/
20 If a student has registered for an event but cannot attend due to unforeseen circumstances, that student is responsible for notifying The School s event organizers or the Program Manager of their absence prior to the day of the event. If a student fails to provide such notice, that individual will no longer receive invitations to non-speaker Series events. Dress Code Students are expected to adhere to a business-casual dress code at the very minimum for all events. Given the stature of many of the speakers and guests at School-hosted events, and the interaction students will be having with these individuals, students are encouraged to wear business-professional attire. For clarification on what constitutes business-casual versus business-professional, please see 18 The School of Public Policy Master of Public Policy Student Handbook 2014/2015
