Mundus MA in Public Policy

About the programme

The Mundus Master of Arts in Public Policy (Mundus MAPP) programme offers a joint degree in public policy.

The overall objective of the programme is to provide scholarly education and practical training for future academic and policy leaders in the public, private and non-profit sectors.

It aims to provide a detailed and systematic understanding of how political institutions, processes and public policies operate and interact from the global political economy through to national and local levels with a direct focus on European engagements at these levels of governance. The design of the programme is based on the belief that future leaders need training in problem situating and problem solving approaches, and in order to situate and understand policy problems, experiences with concrete policy interventions.

Programme partners

The consortium consists of four partners:

The first year is spent either at ISS or at the Central European University in Vienna. The second year either at the University of York or the Institut Barcelona d'Estudis Internationals (IBEI).
