PG Diploma (Public Policy and Sustainable Development)
The PG Diploma (Public Policy and Sustainable Development) - programme, offered by the TERI SAS encompasses a comprehensive and well-structured one-year curriculum on public policy formulation, analysis, evaluation, management, and links with development concerns.
Policy decisions by government officials at all levels are required to be increasingly multifaceted especially in the light of economic reforms and the need to ensure that decision-making contributes to sustainability in the development process. Private not-for-profit and for-profit business entities also have a bearing on development-related policy decisions. To respond effectively to these issues, civil servants and those engaged in the non-governmental sectors, need to
(1) be trained in the politics and economics of public policy and in sophisticated methods and tools of analysis, and
(2) refresh their knowledge of the substantive development issues at hand.
The pedagogical tools will comprise not just classroom lectures but also case studies, field visits, quizzes, term papers, assignments and tutorials, a large number of guest lectures by practitioners and experts, seminars and discussion forums, and role play.
