About The Programme
The PGPPM was flagged off in 2001 from the Centre for Public Policy (CPP), which was established by IIMB with initial support from Department of Personnel and Training, GOI, and UNDP. The main aim of CPP is to develop as an alternate think tank through excellence in research and scholarship, and education and training. PGPPM was started to fulfill the niche for an educational programme in public policy in India.
It was extended to open candidates in the year 2008. Considerable synergies exist among private and public sectors, and we expect the class room experience to enable cross learning. PGPPM proposes to attract overseas participants from current year, and has added another dimension to the learning experience.
The PGPPM programme has contributed in positioning IIMB's CPP as an important policy think tank. PGPPM students have also initiated new policies and steered policy changes in their roles and have made academic contributions through papers and books based on their dissertation wok. A few have also gone to pursue doctoral programmes, including some who have returned to IIMB as FPM students.
PGPPM Alumni are increasingly being recognized for their work. Our Alumni from Government are in the Railway Board, Regulatory Authorities like TRAI and FMC, Planning Commission and in other important senior decision making positions.
The programme provides conceptual, technical and analytical skills in public policy making. The programme will help in appreciating forces shaping the domestic and international environment for public policy. It also enhances soft skills in leadership, decision making, communication, etc.
The participants will be undertaking a Comprehensive Policy Paper which will help them to specialize in the chosen area in public policy field.
A key feature of programme is the Comprehensive Policy Paper. The participants will select a department or programme, and conduct an intensive study on a policy issues or management challenges pertaining to it. They will be doing this study under the guidance of a faculty. They will initiate the study in Term 3 and submit by the end of Term 4. This will be a key take away for both the participants and the sponsoring organizations.
