The MPP was first introduced in 2005 by INPUMA, University of Malaya. It is a comprehensive postgraduate programme that integrates public policy formulation, analysis, evaluation and management.
Core and elective courses provide student with in-depth knowledge of current national, regional and international policy issues. Through intensive coursework and interaction with academicians and practitioners, MPP students can gain awareness of the political environment in which policy decisions are made. They are able to develop an understanding of the effects that the decisions have on individuals, businesses, communities and governments.
The curriculum has undergone several stages of refinement by practicing officials from both,the public and private sectors as well as prominent local and international scholars. The programme is designed to be relevant, flexible and practical in order to meet the current demands.
