MMM Graduate Projects

Students are required to apply the knowledge gained through course work to a specific planning and management problem or issue of interest to them. The gradable components of the Graduate Project (GP) include a Research Paper and a Public Presentation. The Research Paper is completed under the supervision of an appropriate academic advisor. Students are required to give a Public Presentation on their graduate project.

A series of activities, GP Seminars, GP Control Point and GP Proposal, will support students in the conceptualization of the GP. In addition, MARA 5002 includes a practical component, which provides students an Internship period with a public or private sector agency of relevance to the project topic. The area of research must be approved by the MAP Acting Director and Graduate Project Committee.
