The two-year MPP programme is specially designed for pre- and early-career professionals with an interest in public affairs. The programme allows students to acquire a sound understanding of the political, social, and economic processes that shape public policy as well as provide them with a rigorous analytical and managerial toolkit. On graduation, students are ready to pursue a broad spectrum of rewarding careers in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors.
Master in Public Administration (MPA)
The MPA is a management-centric one-year programme for mid-career professionals who wish to enhance their management effectiveness and fulfil their career potential. Drawing on the strengths of a traditional public policy education, the MPA prepares students for the challenges involved in taking on a managerial or leadership position in a variety of public, private and not-for-profit organisations.
Master in Public Management (MPM)
The MPM is an exclusive one-year programme for senior policy-makers with a proven track record in leadership in public service. Developed to intellectually reinvigorate students while equipping them with cutting-edge knowledge and best practices in public policy, the programme also offers students the unique opportunity of observing and participating in the operations of Singapore Government agencies through a six week attachment. In addition, MPM students are introduced to American politics, society and culture by spending the second semester of their studies at either Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government or Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs.
Master in Public Administration and Management (MPAM)
With the fast expanding Chinese economy and its rapid integration with the rest of the world, there is a great and increasing need for public administration education among government officials and state-owned enterprise (SOE) executives from China and other emerging economies. In order to reach out to larger constituents, including mid-level and senior government officials and SOE executives who have a desire to participate in Chinese language based programmes, the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy in collaboration with NUS Business School introduces a Master in Public Administration and Management (MPAM) programme taught in Chinese to train public service professionals and SOE executives. MPAM graduates will be equipped to perform in a wide variety of public service fields in all levels of government, in the international arena, and in the private sector, and will receive a Master of Public Administration and Management (MPAM) degree conferred by the National University of Singapore.
Doctor of Philosophy (PhD)
The PhD programme seeks to strengthen the capability and effectiveness of public policy research. It will equip students with the necessary theoretical frameworks, research methods and tools to conduct scientific inquiry to address contemporary public policy issues. The programme will bolster research capabilities in public policy that will foster a deeper understanding of the complex issues facing public, private and not-for-profit sectors in Asia.
