The Master of Global Public Policy is a two-year master's program launched in 2014. MGPP is the first to offer students the remarkable resources of Russia's two global cities combined in one master's degree that is designed to utilize the strengths of both Moscow and St. Petersburg in an effective fashion. The target audience is both broad and deep, encompassing both Russian and international students, and also recent graduates and those with professional experience. Taught entirely in English, this two-year program is jointly offered by the MGPP Program in Moscow and the Department of Comparative Political Studies at the North-West Institute of Management in St. Petersburg, both under RANEPA label. Students come from over a dozen countries around the globe and the world-class faculty also teach at or have advanced degrees from Harvard, Oxford, Columbia, Sorbonne, and other top universities. The program meets international standards and has been carefully benchmarked to the top graduate-level public policy programs around the world. It is designed to prepare graduates as future leaders and professionals, to address global challenges with sound public policy.
Our graduates work in government (for example, Moscow City Government, government agencies in Colombia, Egypt, Gambia, Khanty-Mansiysk, RUSSIA, Turkey), business (fashion industry, communications and marketing), and international organizations and NGOs (as corporate engagement coordinators, team leaders, and analysts)
