The ultimate goal is to provide the student, upon successful completion of the program, with full-time employment with INAC in the area of audit and evaluation.

“This type of program is extremely beneficial for both students and employers”, said Micheál J. Kelly, Dean at the Telfer School of Management. “Students have the opportunity to develop their leadership skills while gaining practical work experience in their field of interest. INAC will benefit from having qualified students that understand the business and culture of the federal Public Service”.
