Program Description

Decision-making is constantly a challenging process with a growing number of variables and expectations to be met in several fields, all directly impacting society. In this Master’s you will acquire the tools to prompt personal and organizational development both for public and non-governmental companies.

The Master’s program in International Development and Public Policy responds to the demand for applied training in the fields of Public Policy and Development, tailored to attract high-quality international students from a wide range of disciplinary backgrounds, from the social sciences and humanities to economics, political science, and engineering.

Students will be exposed to the fields of economics, management, political science, and quantitative methods, with direct application to Public Policy and Development. At the same time, students will develop an empirical approach to applied issues through Policy Analysis Project (PAP).
