Excellence Through Learning
Centre for Public Policy and Governance (CPPG) was established in 2007 as an academic, research and training institute. Its first activities were the launch of its Faculty Seminar Series and the Research and News Quarterly publication, while designing a degree program in Public Policy. In 2009, it introduced the Executive MA in Public Policy, which is geared towards public, private and non-profit sector managers. In 2014, it launched its MPhil Public Policy program. This first batch of Public Policy graduates qualified in 2016. In both the above programs, students go through a rigorous regimen of theory and practice which leads to skill development in public policy. A final thesis is a requirement which is based on a research proposal, faculty presentations and public defense. The Centre for Public Policy and Governance is committed to promoting and disseminating teaching and research in public policy that focuses on citizen welfare, distributive justice, participatory development, humane governance and consultative and transparent policy processes.
