Erasmus Mundus 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. Interdisciplinarity and practical application of conceptual knowledge are hallmarks of Mundus MAPP.
