Master of Public Policy (MPP)


Master of Public Policy is a 70-credit program that consists of a unique blend of theoretical understanding and application-based pedagogical practices. In addition to familiarising the students with the standard conceptual discourses of public administration, public policy and governance in the first year, the program also boasts of a rigorous component of dissertation writing in the third and fourth semesters to cultivate and hone the research aptitude of students. But what is truly distinctive about the program is that it offers three streams of specialisations namely Science & Management of Sustainability, Data Science, and Sustainability & Engineering. The wide range of choices further branch out in terms of the electives which strategically encompass diverse areas such as Sustainability Science and Governance, Data Science and Engineering, Economics, and Energy and Environmental Policy.
