Master in Public Policy

You'll be Empowered with Expertise of Problem Solving


The public policy is a world of leadership that requires a leader to be vested with intellectual honesty. It is a world that requires a leader with the ability of advocating for causes and providing evidence in relation to theses causes. To be successfully, a leader must be familiar with a wide range of analytic methods. An urge to extract answers from the clutter of real-world public problems. Those are just some of the characteristics of someone who pursues the Master in Public Policy (MPP). It’s a rigorous two-year program that prepares you to understand complex problems and craft concrete solutions. Through courses, exercises and fieldwork, you master concepts and skills that draw on the social sciences but are adapted for action.

A defining feature of the MPP is its relevance: You can take what you learn here, apply it in the real world and deliver results.

Advancing Rule of Law, and Democracy

The public policy program at the United States Institute of Leadership and Diplomacy is  designed within the idea of strengthening democracies globally and empower local populations through an online civic engagement tool called Vote Compass: “When you aggregate data from an incredible amount of individuals in the population, you’re giving them a voice. Big data creates big possibilities.”
