Alumni Stories

Andrea Coelho

As a graduate of Seneca College’s Government Relations program, I walked away with valuable skills that have helped me excel in various positions in crown corporations, industry associations, and private companies. Policy research, stakeholder analysis and engagement, strategic planning, corporate communications, and campaign management are key elements of the program and important lessons to learn for any GR or communications-related career. The program combined theory with hands-on projects, and of course, the opportunity to apply these concepts in our co-op placement was crucial. Those experiences have shaped my career, which is why I will always value my time at Seneca.
