The MGPP program is the first of its kind in Russia and taught entirely in English. It attracts top students and scholars from around the world to Moscow and creates exciting opportunities for Russia's engagement in the ongoing policy dialogue on our common global future.
The first year of the program will be delivered in Moscow and will be comprised of a foundational interdisciplinary curriculum that is taught by top faculty from Russia, France, UK, US, Brazil, and other countries. Students will be equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills to address a range of crucial global policy dilemmas-- economic development, climate change, food and water resources, terrorism and security, global pandemics, and natural disasters, to name only a few.
In the second year in St. Petersburg, students will choose from a range of electives in comparative politics that will enrich their perspectives and provide advanced training in analytical skills. In the final semester, a capstone project will be undertaken to allow students to utilize the training they have received to tackle a significant policy issue in either a Russian or global context, and in many instances the project will be delivered as a consultancy assignment to a client, who may be in the governmental, private, or non-profit sectors.
Instruction will be provided in both cities at the beginning, intermediate, and advanced levels.
global problems that can only be solved through innovative, collaborative efforts-- policy dilemmas such as economic development, trade and ﬁnance, climate change, food supply, terrorism and security, global pandemics, and natural disasters, to name a few.
Also, ISS is an integrated part of the Presidential Academy which is the headquarters for the International Development and Public Policy Alliance (IDPPA),
a consortium of nine leading graduate policy programs in the “BRICS Plus” countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa, Turkey, Egypt, Thailand, and Malaysia). MGPP students benefit from research and study tour collaborations among these programs, and also from visiting faculty.
MGPP produces graduates with cutting-edge knowledge and also strong analytical tools (both qualitative and quantitative), so their career choices are broad and multi-sectoral: not only in government agencies, but also in think-tanks, research institutes, private companies (especially multinationals), international organizations (such as World Bank, IMF, United Nations, development agencies), and consulting firms.
The MGPP curriculum is interdisciplinary and focuses on practical applications of policy concepts and lessons from best practices around the world. Courses are based on leading works in economics, political science, sociology, demography, history, and other disciplines.
