School of Public Policy and Governance

About Us


The School of Public Policy and Governance (SPPG), established in 2013, is a research based learning and teaching institution designed to equip young professionals to contribute to the policy arena. The school offers a two-year post-graduate degree in Public Policy and Governance (M.A- PPG). The first batch of the school graduated in May-2015.

The school is structured to provide foundational training in ethics, economics (including econometrics), law, political science and sociology. Students at the school are persuaded to think beyond the conventional models of growth and development. Having acquired the foundational training, the students are expected to specialise in particular policy concentrations (regulation and institutional reform or science and technology or urbanisation or growth and development). A typical SPPG graduate, from across different policy concentrations, is equipped to read, understand and analyse policies, budgets, legislations, legal documents including court judgments and think and conceive of intellectual and operational frameworks for accountable governance, richer human opportunities and the establishment of a socially equitable society.
