As a Senior International Officer with the Government of Saskatchewan I work as part of team that develops and helps implement the international engagement strategy to increase the province’s profile and ability to compete internationally. The globalized economy means that capital, products and people have more freedom of movement than at any other point in history. Countries, and individual provinces, states and regions within those countries, are competing with one another for export market share, investment dollars, skilled workers and international students. People with an understanding of how diplomacy is conducted and knowledge of the guiding principles and institutions involved in global governance are in demand by governments, international organizations, the private sector and non-governmental organizations to help them further their international objectives.
What I learned, the people I met and what I was able to experience at Oxford were things I could not have gotten anywhere else. This collective experience and Oxford’s international reputation, combined with access to the university’s elite alumni network, have ensured I am well prepared and in a strong position for a successful career in international relations.
