PG in Public Policy Online and Distance Learning Programme by MDI Gurgaon

At a time when the forces of technology and globalization are pushing societies to redefine their paradigms in all areas of critical concern, the field of public policy and governance has gained utmost importance. Recognizing the strategic significance of this field, MDI established The School of Public Policy & Governance in 2005. The Post Graduate Programme in Public Policy & Management (PGP-PPM) is the flagship initiative of the School.

PGP-PPM is an initiative to create a programme of excellence for practice, teaching & research in the field of public policy, governance and public management. The prospective participants are civil servants and public officials from central and state governments as well as participants from the development/policy sector. All the participants in the programme are key stakeholders in our mission to develop a professionally sound public policy and public service delivery which meets the needs of inclusive development by strengthening the learning and capacity building needs of officials/executives working in the field of public affairs and public service delivery.

PGP-PPM offers a unique integration of management concepts, tools and techniques with stress on public policy formulation, analysis and implementation, including the design and execution of delivery systems. It is a fifteen-month programme designed in collaboration with the Department of Personnel and Training, Government of India. Several Cadre Controlling Authorities (CCAs) of the Government of India regularly sponsor their service officers for this programme. In the past, participants have usually been from the three All India Services and Group A (Class–I), Central and State Services.

The first year of the programme is full-time residential and includes a 2 weeks term in an international public policy school with an objective to expose the participants to global governance perspectives and challenges There is a provision for domestic attachment to organisations relevant for public policy professionals. During the second year, participants would return to their respective work locations but would continue to work on a dissertation/policy paper on a topic of their interest having significance for public policy discourse. The Post Graduate Diploma in Management with specialization in Public Policy and Management will be granted only when the dissertation/ policy paper is approved by the evaluation committee.
