The Curriculum

The programme does not only serve as an in-depth understanding of what public policy is, but also equips students with design and management precepts, with the objective to develop better systems thinkers and policy executives. Students will learn not only about public policy analysis, the development of policy, but also the integration of practical concerns of finance, capabilities and ethics, as well as best practices of implementation, management and assessment, across the domains of public administration and public policy.
