Master of Global Public PolicyPrint
WHAT IS MGPP?
The Master of Global Public Policy (MGPP) Program is a two-year graduate degree taught entirely in English by world-class faculty from Russia and around the world. It is the first of its kind in Russia and it prepares its graduates to take leadership positions that address the key global policy challenges today.
WHY GLOBAL PUBLIC POLICY?
The global policy professionals of the 21st century must be equipped with the skills and knowledge to effectively analyze and solve a range of difficult global problems that can only be solved through innovative, collaborative efforts-- policy dilemmas such as economic development, trade and finance, climate change, food supply, terrorism and security, global pandemics, and natural disasters, to name a few.
Also, RANEPA is the headquarters for the International Development and Public Policy Alliance (IDPPA), a consortium of nine leading graduate policy programs in the “BRICS Plus” countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa, Turkey, Thailand, Malaysia, and Egypt). MGPP students benefit from research and study tour collaborations among these programs, and also from visiting faculty. In addition, MGPP offers one-semester student exchange options with world-class partner universities in Paris, Milan, and Beijing.
GLOBAL PUBLIC POLICY CAREERS
MGPP produces graduates with cutting-edge knowledge and also strong analytical tools (both qualitative and quantitative), so their career choices are broad and multi-sectoral: not only in government agencies, but also in think-tanks, research institutes, private companies (especially multinationals), international organizations (such as World Bank, IMF, United Nations, development agencies), and consulting firms.
