Master's in Public Policy (Mundus MAPP)
The Erasmus Mundus Master's Program in Public Policy (Mundus MAPP) is a 2-year-long international Master's course. It directly responds to the educational needs created by the rapidly changing global environment and new public policy challenges.
Mundus MAPP equips graduates with the conceptual knowledge and hard skills that are necessary for understanding and decisively intervening in contemporary transnational policy problems, from climate change to international terrorism or financial regulatory failure. It provides a detailed and systematic understanding of how political institutions, processes and public policies operate and interact from the global political economy through to national and local levels with a direct focus on European engagements at these levels of governance. Inter-disciplinarity and practical application of conceptual knowledge are hallmarks of Mundus MAPP.
The consortium consists of four partners:
- Institut Barcelona d'Estudis Internacionals (Spain)
- Central European University (Budapest, Hungary)
- Institute of Social Studies of Erasmus University Rotterdam (The Hague, Netherlands)
- University of York (UK)
The first year is spent either at Institute of Social Studies of Erasmus University Rotterdam or at the Central European University in Budapest. The second year either at the University of York or the Institut Barcelona d'Estudis Internacionals (IBEI).
Established in 2007, the program operates as an Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree Program funded by the European Commission.
