Meet our faculty

The MA (Public Policy and Sustainable Development)- MA(PP&SD) - programme, offered by the TERI SAS encompasses a comprehensive and well-structured two-year curriculum on public policy formulation, analysis, evaluation, management, and links with development concerns.

Policy decisions by government officials at all levels are required to be increasingly multifaceted especially in the light of economic reforms and the need to ensure that decision-making contributes to sustainability in the development process. Private not-for-profit and for-profit business entities also have a bearing on development-related policy decisions. To respond effectively to these issues, civil servants and those engaged in the non-governmental sectors, need to (1) be trained in the politics and economics of public policy and in sophisticated methods and tools of analysis, and (2) refresh their knowledge of the substantive development issues at hand.


WHY STUDY Public Policy and Sustainable Development ?

Government officials at all levels are required to be increasingly multifaceted in the light of economic reforms and need to ensure that decision-making contributes to sustainability of the development process. Private not-for-profit and for-profit business entities also have a bearing on development-related policy decisions. To respond effectively to these issues, civil servants and those engaged in the non-governmental sectors, need to (1) be trained in the politics and economics of public policy and in sophisticated methods and tools of analysis, and (2) refresh their knowledge of the substantive development issues at hand. An academic programme that combines both public policy and sustainable development would add great value to those officials who are in the process of policy formulation as well as those in the not - for profit and for profit business sector.


WHY STUDY AT TERI SAS ?

The TERI SAS was one of the first universities to start a Masters programme in public policy in India. It is the only institute, which offers a comprehensive programme on public policy and sustainable development in the country. The programme started in 2006 with the support of the Department of Personnel and Training, Government of India primarily intended for mid-career civil servants.

With a judicious mix of courses covering basic concepts, a practical orientation, and new methodologies and tools, the programme intends to allow future leaders in the government and other agencies to enhance their awareness about the overall public policy environment, in which they have to take decisions. The programme is also intended to sharpen the understanding of the effects that policy decisions have on political, economic, social, and environmental aspects in domestic as well as international domain.

The participants have the option of completing the programme in one year after undertaking domestic and foreign component, in which case they would be awarded with a Post Graduate Diploma in Public Policy and Sustainable Development.

As the participants of the programme consist of mid-career civil servants and are from the profit and not for profit sectors, it gives immense opportunities for cross learning.


Grateful for the support provided by
