Good governance is knowing how public institutions conduct public affairs and manage public resources.
It signiﬁes a participative manner of governing that functions in a responsible, accountable and transparent manner based on the principles of efﬁciency, legitimacy, and consensus to promote individual rights of citizens and the public interest.
Public policy can generally be deﬁned as a system of laws, regulatory measures, courses of action and funding priorities concerning a given topic promulgated by a governmental entity or its representatives.
The ﬁrst of its kind in India, our programme focuses on equipping students with tools for analysis and development of public policy.
The course nurtures students to become ethically sound, political, educational, and social leaders.
Students are taken out to visit the parliament, secretariat and watch LIVE sessions in the legislative assembly and in villages to understand the resources and issues.
One can specialize in one of the three: political governance, administrative governance or NGO and corporate governance.
Students who pass out from here can work in the civil or public service domain or can work as social entrepreneurs, NGO managers, policy research analysts, and public relations managers in the corporate sector. Students can take up CSR and NGO Management.

I want to be a civil servant but I think that exams alone don’t provide enough training for those who want to become good administrators. To be an effective leader, you need to be dynamic and do the groundwork. This course trains students to become dynamic leaders. The most fascinating part of the course is that that you actually learn to practically engage with what you study.
The program trains me in subjects including law, economy, environment, and resource management, which are crucial to the policymaking process. At the same time the course is complemented by fieldwork for holistic development. As a civil service aspirant, I have the opportunity to learn what it means to be an effective administrator and a nation leader from top civil service officers and politicians.
The course offers an ideal blend of academics and fieldwork. As part of our fieldwork, we also had the opportunity to visit surrounding villages. That was when I began to understand village life, its problems and dynamics. It inspired me and strengthened my conviction to work for rural development. I believe that a good politician has to be dynamic outside and calm within and Sri Sri University is the best place to learn to become a good leader.
Being a student of Good Governance and Public Policy at Sri Sri University is a lifetime opportunity to get Education in such a beautiful Environment where the Exposure leads to expand our personality in multiple dimensions.
