Master of Public Policy (MPP)
The Brandt School’s Master of Public Policy (MPP) is a two-year interdisciplinary degree program. It is designed for young academics and professionals who wish to pursue a career in public service, including government agencies, international organizations and the non-profit sector. The MPP program equips future decision makers with the knowledge and practical skills they will need to advance the public interest and make sound policy decisions. Based on our students' and faculty's learnings, the Brandt School initiated a project on the Internationalization and Digitalization of Education in 2021.
Drawn from political science, economics, sociology, public administration and law, the MPP curriculum builds the skills and knowledge base required of a professional policy analyst. It includes courses in political and economic analysis, statistics, public management and ethics. Throughout the coursework, research and field experience, students develop their understanding of the policy process and the institutions and actors involved in that process.
The MPP is a practice-oriented, non-consecutive Master degree with a standard duration of four semesters, or two years of full-time study, resulting in 120 credit points (ECTS). The degree corresponds to a second cycle/level 7 degree of the European Qualifications Framework (EQF).
With a class coming from over 20 countries, the Brandt School offers a truly international and diverse learning environment. I treasure every exchange with my fellows. It deepens my perspective and reminds me of my blind spots, making me a more understanding and humble person --- a better world citizen. Also, different specializations in the program open doors to different fields, and help me to discover my potential.
