The Indian School of Public Policy (ISPP) was launched last week by former-policy makers, industry-leaders, philanthropists and eminent academicians. This is the country's first school of public policy that is focused on design and management of institutions and rules that govern society.
First batch to begin in August 2019.
The school intends to develop a new class of policy leaders for India by equipping policy professionals with knowledge, skills, wisdom and ethics to understand, design and implement local solutions to India's enduring policy and governance challenges. The one-year, master's equivalent programme will be a blended design of theory, perspectives and best-practices of public policy from around the world, augmented with technical, managerial and leadership skills. ISPP has already secured commitment of support from industry leaders like Deloitte, Uber, PwC, Twitter, Dasra, Skill India, GMR Group, Samhita and Manipal Education Group.
The school will offer one-year full-time program in public policy, design and management to candidates with two-three years of relevant professional experience and will offer full waiver on fees to 20% of enrolled students. Scheduled to commence its first session from August 19, 2019, the course fee would be Rs 7 lakh annually. For further details, please log on to www.ispp.org.in. —TNS
