The public policy is a world of leadership program that requires a leader to be vested with intellectual honesty. It is a world that requires a leader with the ability of advocating for causes and providing evidence in relation to theses causes. To be successfully, a leader must be familiar with a wide range of analytic methods. An urge to extract answers from the clutter of real-world public problems. Those are just some of the characteristics of someone who pursues the Master in Public Policy (MPP). It’s a rigorous two-year program that prepares you to understand complex problems and craft concrete solutions. Through courses, exercises and fieldwork, you master concepts and skills that draw on the social sciences but are adapted for action.
