Jindal School of Government and Public Policy (JSGP) offers India’s first MA in Public Policy. This Masters programme will equip students to perform effectively in complex policy environments. It is interdisciplinary in approach and enables students to address contemporary political, economic and social issues in a coherent and comprehensive manner. The Masters programme 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 policy making process, and enhance their managerial skills. We encourage students to choose courses and topics which help them to explore their intellectual curiosity. 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 Masters in Public Policy programme has been designed to equip future policymakers and public leaders with competence to perform effectively in challenging environments. Students are put through a rigorous process of assessment via class tests, research papers and final Masters Dissertation.
