Master of Management Studies (Public Policy) (MMS(PP))
It aims at strengthening the public policy and managerial skills of future leaders and senior managers from the civil services; and professionals from social, infrastructure and private sectors. Liberalization has blurred the boundary between the public and private as more sectors like infrastructure, utilities and services have got opened up. Private-Public Partnership (PPP) is the new name of the game. It is a unique programme, where professionals from Government and non-government sectors come together in a classroom.
It was started to fulfil the need for an educational programme in public policy in India for government officers.
It was extended to open candidates in 2008. Considerable synergies exist among private and public sectors, and we expect the classroom experience to enable cross-learning. It proposes to attract overseas participants from the current year, and has added another dimension to the learning experience.
