Post Graduate Programme in Public Policy & Management (PGPPM)

Course Highlights

The PGPPM was introduced in 2002 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.

 

PGPPM offers two-week international immersion and also Rural Immersion.

 

PGPPM was extended to the non-government, ‘open’ candidates in 2008 and enables cross learning between participants from the private and public sectors.

 

The PGPPM 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.

 

PGPPM 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.
