The MIT School of Government (MIT-SOG) was created by Shri. Rahul V. Karad, Executive President of Dr. Vishwanath Karad MIT World Peace University, with the aim of producing ethical, passionate, and dedicated political leaders for the country from diverse backgrounds. Good political leadership from Panchayat to Parliament can only ensure good governance and vibrant democracy in a country with this thought.


Established in 2005, MIT-SOG is the first institution of its kind to offer a two-year Master's Programme in Political Leadership & Government (MPG). The Programme is designed to provide hands-on learning experiences for its students, with the first year consisting of classroom lectures delivered by core faculty members, visiting professors, and eminent personalities from the fields of politics, social work, bureaucracy, judiciary, media, and business. In addition to lectures, students are taken to field visits and study tours. During the second year of the Programme, students undergo training and internships in constituency-based, issue-based/NGO, media, and final career-based internships with the offices of political leaders, political parties and Political Consultancy organisations. MIT-SOG's mission is to empower young people as a critical mass with a strong sense of commitment, compassion, dynamism, ethics, professionalism, and values vision to engage in politics.

The Master’s degree programme is designed to provide practical exposure to understanding all nuances of politics and government. MPG comprises four semesters with the first year being campus-based and the second year being off-campus with different types of internships and attachments. All subjects are compulsory and aim to provide an understanding of the various aspects of politics and government that students are expected to know as political leaders.
