Why has the Chanakya School of Public Policy (CSPP) opted to offer this MPP/MBA Public Policy programme?

Simply put, we believe there is a need for a different sort of public policy education, one that is tailored to today’s reality. Today’s public organisations — and the organisations that deal with them — are bombarded with huge volumes of information and conflicting viewpoints, each with a distinct call to action. Economists will advise whether a policy proposal concept is efficient; lawyers will advise whether it is legal; financiers will advise whether it is affordable; and philosophers will advise whether it is morally correct. However, in order to create ‘good’ policy, policymakers at the mid- or senior-level must comprehend and navigate through these many points of view. This is referred to as the craft of government.

Students can then add electives — extra courses — to their schedule.
