Public Policy and Global Affairs

Vision statement

We aspire to become a nationally and internationally recognized program which nurtures students to become innovative, responsible, engaged and resilient leaders, advance knowledge through high quality research, and make a sustainable impact on global progress.

Public Policy and Global Affairs (PPGA) is an innovative programme offered by NTU since 2013 to provide students with interdisciplinary training and equip them with practical knowledge and skill sets necessary to dissect and solve real world problems facing political leaders, policymakers, and the global community.

The wealth of PPGA’s course offerings enables students to have a solid foundation in areas of politics, international relations, public administration, and public policy. Students are trained to be thought leaders to confront the problems of today and to design solutions for a sustainable future. Graduates can work in a wide range of professions in the public, private, non-profit sectors, both regionally and globally.

Our faculty members come from diverse backgrounds and have strong professional credentials. They exhibit a sustained commitment to perform excellence in teaching and research and contribute positively to society. Their passion keeps students interested, engaged, inspired and motivated. Their research projects are published in top-tier journals, making a significant and original contribution to knowledge on political institutions and behaviour, public policy and administration, and the values and ethics of government. Their provision of community services helps build a stronger, more caring and resilient society.
