Department of
Good Governance & Public Policy

  • 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.
