While advancements in science and technology have been rapidly expanding the range of solutions for tackling global challenges such as climate change and population ageing, science and technology innovations have also given rise to a complex set of ethical, institutional and legal issues for governments, non-profit and private entities. Public policy will play an increasingly important role in unlocking the full potential of science and technology in improving the human condition and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.

The Master of Public Policy (MPP) Program is an interdisciplinary program that equips students with knowledge of the full impact of science and technology innovations, and professional skills in the formulation and implementation of innovative solutions to current and emerging global challenges. The program draws on research and teaching excellence from across a diverse range of disciplines to equip students with a set of core skills in data analytics, economic analysis, and management to become effective policy professionals.

Designed for students with diverse educational backgrounds, including social science, science, engineering, business, and other fields of study, this two-year full-time program consists of a core curriculum, an optional summer internship upon completion of the first year of study, a second year client-based policy analysis project, and elective courses allowing students to develop their areas of specialization. It provides students with complete professional training that focuses on problem-solving skills with real-world cases and examples.

The program places an emphasis on knowledge, analytic skills and management capacities that are highly transferable across sectors, issue areas and global regions. Graduates of the MPP Program may work as analysts, managers, researchers and consultants in a wide variety of organizations, including government agencies, non-profit organizations and private businesses. The training provided by the program is particularly relevant for policy professionals seeking to advance their careers in industries at the frontline of science and technology advancements, such as information technology and telecommunications, environment, energy, health care, transportation and finance.

On successful completion of the program, graduates will be able to:

  • Identify and define complex policy problems, and design original and innovative policy proposals to address them, demonstrating expertise in substantive policy area(s);
  • Select and apply the appropriate analytical tools to evaluate public policy proposals and to interpret and present the results of such analyses;
  • Generate strategies for the implementation of policy proposals, using knowledge of policy processes and institutions in diverse settings, including Hong Kong, China, and Europe and the United States; and
  • Effectively present and negotiate policy proposals with other professionals.
