University College London (UCL)'s Department of Political Science and NYU Wagner have created a unique partnership to offer a truly joint Global Public Policy and Management degree designed for international civil servants. 


About this Degree

The robust blend of theoretical and applied policy analysis and management studies is intended to provide a distinctive edge enabling public service leaders to function with many actors in a global environment to devise and implement strategies for change.

Students will spend the first semester at NYU Wagner in New York City, the Spring Term at UCL and the summer in locations across the globe working on a client-based Capstone project. Core modules bridge cutting-edge concepts and skills in policy analysis, management, implementation, and facilitating change. Students will then select from the offerings of both institutions to craft an approach best suited to their specific needs.

This Global Public Policy and Management programme at the University College London (UCL) is suitable for mid-career public service professionals - analysts, decision makers and managers - on an executive track who wish to refresh their knowledge base and to reinvent how they approach their work.
