Starting from the academic year 2023-2024, IBEI is excited to announce the launch of a new Masters’ degree in Public Policy. An inter-university degree jointly awarded by Universitat Pompeu Fabra and Universitat de Barcelona. Its primary objective is to provide graduate students with focused training that will prepare them for successful careers in various areas such as public administration, think tanks, specialized bodies, social and political organizations, and more. Our aim is to equip students with a comprehensive understanding of the complexities and challenges associated with public policy.

The first edition of the programme will offer concentrations in European Public Policy and Global Public Policy, in addition to core courses that will cover essential analytical content. These concentrations will enable students to delve deeper into specific areas of interest and acquire specialized knowledge in these critical policy domains.

This launch event serves as a platform for exchanging ideas and perspectives on what a new programme should deliver to dedicated and passionate students. We warmly invite your participation and look forward to your valuable contributions.
