Master of Global Public Policy

Master of Global Public Policy


MGPP 2017

The MGPP Program is the first to offer students the remarkable resources of Russia's two global cities combined in one master's degree that is designed to utilize the strengths of both Moscow and St. Petersburg in an effective fashion. The target audience is both broad and deep, encompassing both Russian and international students, and also recent graduates and those with professional experience. Taught entirely in English, this two-year program is jointly offered by the MGPP Program in Moscow and the Department of Comparative Political Studies at the North-West Institute of Management in St. Petersburg, both under the Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration (RANEPA).



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.


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.


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.
