The College of Public Policy (CPP) is the newest college to be launched by Hamad bin Khalifa University, and reflects the priority that the university places on supporting and contributing to effective policy development and implementation for the Qatar National Vision 2030.
The College’s first program, beginning in Fall 2019, is its flagship Master of Public Policy (MPP). The two-year program combines the highest international standards in the field with a distinctive combination of interdisciplinarity, strong ethical foundations, entrepreneurship in public management, and innovation in policy making and design. Students will develop a solid core of theoretical knowledge and have the opportunity to then specialize in either social policy or in energy and environmental policy. The specializations are supported by advanced seminars and labs, and culminate in a team-based, client-driven capstone project that addresses a real-world problem.
The College is a unique and exciting environment – a “start-up” that is charged with energy, and open to innovative ideas and experimentation. It is recruiting the best international faculty, building its research capacity, and engaging with Qatar and the global community. It aims to be one of the leading public policy schools in the region and the world, acting as a bridge and a hub for innovative policy solutions that contribute to the public good.
