MA (Public Policy and Sustainable Development)

MA (Public Policy and Sustainable Development)

Programme details

Policy decisions by government officials at all levels are required to be increasingly multifaceted especially in the light of economic reforms and the need to ensure that decision-making contributes to sustainability in the development process. Private not-for-profit and for-profit business entities also have a bearing on development-related policy decisions. To respond effectively to these issues, civil servants and those engaged in the non-governmental sectors, need to (1) be trained in the politics and economics of public policy and in sophisticated methods and tools of analysis, and (2) refresh their knowledge of the substantive development issues at hand.

The M.A. (Public Policy and Sustainable Development) - programme, encompasses a comprehensive and well-structured two-year curriculum on public policy formulation, analysis, evaluation, management, and links with development concerns. With a judicious mix of courses covering basic concepts, a practical orientation, and new methodologies and tools, the programme intends to allow future leaders in the governments and other agencies to enhance their awareness of the overall public policy environment in which they have to make decisions. The programme is also intended to sharpen the understanding of the effects that policy decisions have on political, economic, social, and environmental aspects in domestic and international domains.
