Our aim is for CPP to evolve as a center for discussion on policy issues and policy research.
We have just embarked on our unique and exciting journey and as a ‘start-up’, we are charged with energy and open to innovative ideas and experimentation. To help us in our mission of building the institution’s research capacity and engaging meaningfully with Qatar, the region, and the global community, we are joined by outstanding faculty and a diverse and engaged student body.

The College of Public Policy (CPP) is a Gold Member of The Journal of Comparative Policy Analysis, which is affiliated to the International Comparative Policy Analysis Forum (ICPA).
I was particularly attracted to the interdisciplinary nature of the Master of Public Policy program as the curriculum and the courses offered align well with my interests and objectives. The coursework will help me increase my knowledge and learn the skills necessary to contribute to the development and modernization of my home country. Besides core policy courses, the program offers the opportunity for professional development through the cooperation it has built with various organizations in Qatar.
Our program focuses on interdisciplinary and problem-based approaches and toolsets to effectively address grand challenges such as social, family and health issues, migration, or climate, energy and broader sustainability challenges. We look forward to providing excellence in training for qualified graduate students from Qatar and abroad.
HBKU is a great place to study public policy. We offer exceptional learning resources, and a highly supportive learning environment. Additionally, our faculty includes globally recognized scholars and practitioners who are committed to high-quality teaching and mentoring. I heartily recommend students to come and study at HBKU.
