Course Highlights

The Master of Management Studies - Public Policy (MMS-PP) was introduced in 2002 as a post graduate diploma programme (PGPPM) by the Centre for Public Policy (CPP), which was established by IIMB with initial support from the Department of Personnel and Training, GOI and UNDP. It integrates public policy and general management skills into a single programme. After the passing of IIM Act 2017, IIM Bangalore has started awarding MBA degree instead of diploma and as such the programme name was changed to MMSPP.


MMS-PP offers two-week international immersion and also Rural Immersion. MMS-PP was extended to the non-government, ‘open’ candidates in 2008 and enables cross learning between participants from the private and public sectors.


The MMS-PP programme has helped position IIMB's CPP as an important policy think tank. Its Alumni have been instrumental in initiating new policies and steering policy changes in their roles. They have also made significant academic contributions through papers and books.


MMS-PP Alumni occupy senior positions in different ministries of the Government, the Railway Board, regulatory authorities like SEBI, TRAI and FMC, Planning Commission, UN bodies and many other important senior decision making positions in government and beyond. They also hold leadership positions in central and state PSUs like GAIL, BSNL, BMTC and MAHDA, JN Port Trust in Mumbai and with NGOs and as consultants and analysts in the private sector.
