Realising the dearth of trained manpower in various arenas of public engagement, such as Corporate/Government sector, National/Global organisations, Apeejay Stya University adds three new courses, which will open a wide array of alternatives for the students with opportunities in India and abroad, primarily in government, community, development and private sectors.
The Programmes namely BBA in Public Policy and administration, MBA in Public Policy and Administration and MA-Public Policy and Development Studies are designed to focus on understanding changing expectations about the government along with the changing modes of delivering public services. The BBA in Public Policy and administration is a Bachelor program designed for duration of four years. Five year integrated programme Masters in Business Administration (MBA) in Public Policy and Administration, aims to produce graduates who will understand and apply relevant theories and concepts; develop skills to define and resolve issues in public policy and management; and blend theory and practice by working throughout the course on a wide range of practical issues. MA-Public Policy and Development Studies is another five year program which has been developed due to the arising need of professionals having expertise in the particular area. This is a result of the commitment of Apeejay Stya University to provide well rounded professionals to the society who will have a focused approach towards Governance and development.
“The programmes first give students a comprehensive exposure to a variety of fields and different schools of thought through a set of 'Core' disciplines that enhances their broad understanding of the domains of science, technology, arts, literature, philosophy and language. The 'Core' combined with the 'Liberal Arts' approach of ASU, develops the students' ability to excel in cross-functional roles, collaborate across boundaries, and analyze and communicate effectively. This is followed by a thorough grounding in public policy concepts and frameworks that prepares them to solve complex policy challenges, gain an understanding of finance, macro-economics, strategic management, HR, governance and effective administration.” says Sushma Berlia, Chancellor, Apeejay Stya University
