Public Policy and Management (MSc)

Programme status: Fully Approved

A unique strength of this programme is that it addresses both policy-making and policy implementation issues with equal weight. As well as understanding how policy choices are made (and indeed how policy may develop by default, without clear choices and priorities being established), you will analyse the issues involved in decisions about how public services are managed, and explore how levels of government interact and how the private sector is involved in the implementation of public policy.

The MSc Public Policy and Management is suitable if you are interested in acquiring the skills necessary for the systematic analysis of government policies and programmes.
