The Indian Institute of Management Bangalore (IIMB) today announced that it will conduct a PGPPM Open House at the India International centre, Lodhi Estate in New Delhi on Monday, November 19, 2012 at 5:30 p.m.
The Open House will provide a forum for interaction between prospective students interested in knowing more about the programme, alumni and faculty. The Post Graduate Programme in Public Policy and Management (PGPPM) is an ideal study opportunity for professionals interested in getting engaged in policy making and public system management.
According to Professor G Ramesh, Chairperson, PGPPM, When the programme was launched eleven years ago, it was exclusively meant for mid-career officers from the civil services. In recent years, it has been opened to candidates from outside the government as also to overseas applicants and we have experienced a strong interest from these candidates.
The programme is designed for professionals from NGO'S, International Agencies, PSUs, Infrastructural and Social Sectors, CSR, Consulting and other service sectors. The programme targets professionals who have a minimum five years of experience. The programme is well received among civil servants and gaining in popularity among the non-government participants. The candidates from government can visit DoPT website.
The Post Graduate Programme in Public Policy and Management (PGPPM) was flagged off in 2001 from the Centre for Public Policy (CPP), which was established by IIMB with initial support from the Department of Personnel and Training, GOI, and UNDP. The main aim of CPP is to develop as an alternate think tank through excellence in research and scholarship, and education and training. The PGPPM was started to fulfill the niche for an educational programme in public policy in India for officers from government and civil services.
