School of Public Policy and Governance

About Us


 

Established in the year 2013, the School of Public Policy and Governance (SPPG) has a mandate to create a cadre of public policy professionals who through their multi-disciplinary training respond to current challenges and incubate ideas to proactively meet future demands. The school provides interdisciplinary foundational training in Ethics and Policy, Economics (including big data analytics), Law, Political Science, and Sociology.  It encourages students to be reflexive in developing institutional designs that can transform public services.

 

The school offers three Post Graduate Programmes:

  • Understand governance models, policy frameworks and institutional architecture at the intersection of theory and practice

  • Develop skills to read, analyse and interpret financial and budget documents.
  • Build methodological skills for policy research
  • Evolve institutional designs and planning frameworks for equitable and sustainable futures
