Master of Public Policy and Management - A6033

Public Policy and Management

Expert master degree

Take your career to the next level and lead change in Indonesia and abroad. 

As Indonesia looks to a future made possible through significant growth and development, improved global purchasing power and an increasingly educated, mobile workforce, it also faces the challenges inherent in rapid expansion and urbanisation.

Where growth has been swift and substantial, public policy has to work hard to keep up with the demands of a modernising country. Public leaders and policymakers need to meet these challenges with innovative, inventive mindsets and a deep understanding of the interplay between all the factors that influence quality of life, community and prosperity in societies.

The Master of Public Policy and Management is an interdisciplinary course empowering graduates with the understanding of how Government and public policy works at every level, as well as the practical skills and tools, backed by analytical rigour, to inform policy, develop solutions, lead others and influence change within the public sector, civil society and business.

Students will be taught by globally experienced academics and policy experts, and work with a like-minded global cohort, to apply their learnings in universal public contexts. Core units will provide essential knowledge and understanding of public policy processes, while specialist streams in policy studies, business innovation, public health and urban design will allow students to explore specific interests of critical importance to Indonesia and its surrounding region.

Anchored in the realities of the digitising economy and aligned to the nation’s strategic planning for the future, graduates will be well-prepared to take on leadership roles and emerging opportunities with a public focus, that will genuinely help drive a better future for all Indonesians and Indonesia’s place in the world.
