O.P. Jindal Global University - Admission to M.A. in Public Policy

Applications are invited from eligible candidates for admission to M.A. in Public Policy at O.P. Jindal Global University for the academic year 2016-18.

Why Public Policy?
The MA in Public Policy (MPP) program is interdisciplinary. It enables students to address contemporary political economic and social issues in a coherent and comprehensive manner. MPP imparts a strong training in theory, covering key literature and debates. Students develop quantitative and qualitative analytical skills, receive an exposure to the real world policymaking process, and enhance their managerial skills. The challenge before the policymakers and public leaders is to find solutions to the developmental problems, to defend democratic values, and to resist authoritarian impulses to 'catch up' with or mimic less democratic countries. The program has been designed to equip future policymakers and public leaders with competence to perform effectively in challenging environments.

In the course of two years JSGP graduates will acquire capacities and competencies which are invaluable not only to governments and public institutions directly serving the people, but also to an array of institutions outside government, including the private sector, civil society organizations, media, political parties and policy-oriented research institutions.

Objectives:
MA in Public Policy (MPP) is an interdisciplinary degree programme that bridges the gap between theory and practice. The programme teaches the students to delve into the contemporary issues in a coherent and holistic manner, to see the interconnections between various aspects of an issue and to be analytically and conceptually rigorous. The MPP programme will impart a strong training in theory, covering the key literature and debates on a subject or an issue. Students will develop quantitative and qualitative analytical skills, receive an exposure to the real world policymaking process, and enhance their managerial skills. The programme will prepare students to assume leadership position in the field of public policy and institutional management.
