Rethinking Policy Education

Indian School of Public Policy has been established with a bold vision to develop a new class of policy leaders for India. The one-year programme at ISPP has been designed to inculcate an incisive understanding of the Indian context and hone globally relevant skills to achieve international standards of competencies through its immersive, rigorous and inter-disciplinary curriculum.

The programme prepares policy leaders and policy professionals with skills, wisdom and ethics to imagine, design and implement relevant solutions to India’s policy and governance challenges. The school’s focus on design and management of public policy has initiated new debates, discoveries and developments that has further offered the scope to our scholars to explore their capabilities to make meaningful impact.

ISPP’s dynamic, diverse and stimulating environment is for those who wish to make a difference. We’re committed to changing our society one step at a time and our curriculum designed by the leaders for the leaders will help you make this vision a reality. If you think you’re someone who wants to contribute to a more just and sustainable world through service, scholarship and community partnership, then ISPP is the place for you.

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.
