    Hello everyone!

    The Financial Times has an article about the growing appeal of public policy programs in Asia. The article explores how MPP students are often similar to MBA students but looking to be trained in government, media and civil society. They also explain some of the appeal of studying in Asia.

    Personally, we have seen very little interest in Asian programs from North Americans and Europeans. However, we believe that interest will grow as recruiters notice the burgeoning Asian programs and the international applicants start having better post graduation job prospects in their own countries. In fact, we wouldn’t be surprised to see Asian programs in the top 10 within the next 20 years.

    Best of luck with your applications!

    There is a lot to be learned from Asia about public policy.

    North America and Western Europe are great to learn what not to do



    I agree but fear Asia won’t be viewed as ‘progressive’ enough.



    Idon’t want to learn progressive. I want to learn good solid theory.
