International Undergraduate Program in Public Policy and Management (IUP in PPM) is purposefully designed to respond new challenges in both local and national as well as global level. The program aims at arming students with knowledge and skills in three main areas, namely:

  1. Governance and Public Policy
  2. This area of interest is designed to arm students with broad understanding and technical capacity as to how to make public policy, implement and evaluate it, as well as underpinning governance structure which structures its process. This area is highly dedicated for students who are specifically interested to be professional policy analyst and practitioners in public sector and international organizations.

  3. Public Management and Innovation
  4. Managing public sector in new context requires professional practitioners with strong background in human resource management, organizational development, public service innovation, and knowledge management. International organizations, prominent internationally-linked government bodies, multinational corporations, and private sector are among the potential career options.

  5. International Development and Policy

Prospective students who are interested in pursuing career path in international institutions, multinational corporations, international NGOs and high-profile governmental organizations are strongly recommended to focus in this area.
