India's First 1-Year PG Programme in Policy, Design and Management

A year-long, Master’s equivalent certificate programme in Policy, Design & Management, intended to prepare students for challenging careers in policy action across government, industry and civil-society.

ISPP will follow a comprehensive training philosophy and the curriculum will be a blended design of the theory, perspectives and best-practices of public policy from around the world.

ISPP has meaningful support from leading corporate organizations, government wings and non-profit groups. These partners help in designing the curriculum, conducting policy action exercises, facilitating live projects and placements. We have hosted 30+ workshops and guest sessions by industry experts and policy professionals at the campus.

Programme Overview

The programme in Policy, Design & Management is built and designed for aspiring public policy managers, practitioners and administrators.

The programme will ground students in a strong policy foundation with theoretical rigor while being experience and problem driven.

The aim of the programme will be to equip tomorrow’s policy leaders with core skills in implementation, management & assessment.

The programme will be open to all students who qualify on merit, without assuming prior policy experience.

The ISPP Advantage

ISPP trains its scholars to be leaders for policy action. As such, our scholars not only undergo a comprehensive academic programme in Public Policy, but they are also rigorously trained in management, communication and leadership skills. The one year academic session is divided into 8 terms of 6 weeks each.

Life at ISPP

The ISPP is conceived as the first Indian school of public policy focused on the design and management of institutions and rules that govern society. It has been set-up in Delhi by an eminent council of senior academicians, policy experts, administrators and philanthropists.

Our campus is a flourishing space in the Qutub Institutional Area of New Delhi. It is India’s first dedicated policy school situated in the heart of South Delhi.

With a state-of-the-art classroom topped with latest technological facilities, clubbed with an in-campus library boasting an extensive collection of books, journals and magazines; the students also get the freedom to facilitate group work and hold discussions within more relaxed spaces on the campus like the cafeteria, reading rooms, study lounges, workshop spaces and more.

Dean's Message

India is at an exciting and critical stage of its development. India has, and will continue to have in the next decades, the largest young population in the world. As societies become more and more knowledge-based, rules and institutions that shape local, national and global engagements will have to change to meet the aspirations of the youth in India.

Designing these rules and institutions will form the essence of public policy in the next few decades. Because they will be affected by them, the youth must participate in designing them.

Welcome to the Indian School of Public Policy!
