The Master in Public Policy (MPP) degree at Princeton University provides rigorous training in economic, behavioral and political analysis, including systematic qualitative as well as quantitative analysis. The curriculum is quite flexible, and the course of study can be tailored to each student’s professional needs.
Typically about half of our MPP students come from countries outside the United States. Since its launch in 1997-98, the MPP degree program has provided a year of reflection and intellectual and personal growth for more than 300 rising leaders from the public and non-profit sectors. MPP candidates come from a variety of educational and professional backgrounds. They have been drawn from the civil service, the diplomatic corps, the military, U.N. agencies, and the following sectors: healthcare, human services, human rights, humanitarian relief, international development, law, journalism, the arts, the environment, and national security.
