Message from Associate Director

Greetings from MIT-WPU School of Public Policy!

The school has been established with a zeal to evolve itself into a leading institution of Public Policy with an ensemble of eminent senior leaders, academicians, policy experts, administrators, philanthropists and media representatives to contribute their wisdom to understand, design and implement better governance models with local solutions for India’s enduring policy and governance challenges.

The school offers three year BA Hons. (Government & Administration) full-time degree program. It takes an interdisciplinary approach of learning with an emphasis on Indian political system, governance and administration. It offers a blend of interactive learning methods, introducing concepts of experiential learning, debates, critical analysis techniques that help students embark on a career in Indian Government, Indian Polity System and Administrative Offices.

This is the first School of Public Policy in India, to award a Master in Science (M.Sc.) degree in Public Policy, focused on developing scientific enquiry in policy making emphasizing skill-development, research and knowledge management activities. The rigour is to provide students with experiential learning, On-field data collection, strengthening research skills, publication of journals and research papers for good governance.

As India is poised for its rightful place in comity of nations the administration and governance needs to respond to the high expectations of a society with pre-ponderance of youth, and develop sustainable conflict free solutions with a resilient administration and delivery mechanism.

I welcome you all at MIT School of Public Policy (SPP) & a happy learning!
