Erasmus Mundus Masters Program in Public Policy (Mundus MAPP)

You can tailor your studies to your career goals thanks to our flexible system of tracks and electives. This EU-supported international public policy program offers a mix of analytical and practical components, such as internships and study visits, and includes a second year at one of two partner institutions.
Master of Arts in International Public Affairs (MAIPA)
2 YEARS / The Master of Arts in International Public Affairs (MAIPA) is an interdisciplinary degree with an international profile intended for students who aspire to work in international organizations, NGOs, public administration, or related fields such as journalism and academia. International Public Affairs captures two dimensions of study: on the one hand, the international, which includes governance on the regional, global and transnational levels; and on the other hand, the public, which includes interaction among the government, private and the voluntary sector.
PhD in Political Science, Public Policy Track
