In a society challenged by globalization and rapid changes in social and economic development, public policy has become a highly complex and multi-dimensional field. With increasing education level of citizens and their growing demands for accountability and performance in the public sector, public policy makers must consider different points of view with an interdisciplinary perspective in order to balance the diverse interests and concerns in society and achieve an optimal policy outcome.
With the above context in mind, MSSc Programme in Public Policy (MPUP) is designed for leaders and professionals who are currently or prospectively working as a decision maker in government, public organizations, non-profit organizations, law firms, commercial organizations, news media, or other private institutes in frequent contacts with the public sector. The Programme will equip them with knowledge, ideas, and strategies to help them deal with global and local policy changes effectively.
The courses focus on both theoretical foundation and professional practices. They aim at broadening the students’ horizon and enhancing their ability to formulate, analyze, and implement public policy.
