“The MPC synthesizes theoretical and practical learning, which was exactly what I was looking for — I didn’t find it anywhere else in Canada. The internship allowed me to explore my skills and interests in a real-life professional environment, while my major research paper was a great addition to my portfolio. This gave me a competitive edge over other job candidates.”
