Program objectives Market dynamics, economic globalization, ﬁnancing development, environment, corruption, ﬁnancial crime, regional integration, cultural diversity and trade, and education are key global policy issues at the intersection of local, national and global interests. This inherent complexity is ampliﬁed by the ever growing number of actors involved in decision-making process. The Master in International Public Management (IPM) Is intended for students who are interested in careers in international public service that rely on advisory and advocacy skills in order to facilitate and coordinate the formulation of global policy. The program provides students with a variety of tools essential to becoming key players in the decision-making process at the international and global level. By the end of the program, PSIA IPM students will have the tools to operate as policymakers in a variety of cultural contexts, addressing issues of international visibility. The program is taught both by professors and practitioners. The team includes notably Richard Balme, Howard Davies, Mary Kaldor, Miguel Angel Moratinos and Ursula Plassnik. Main orientations and speciﬁc features Depending on their career aspirations, students chart a personalised course of study in the IPM program. Courses are provided in three main areas: international policy and analysis, diplomacy and foreign policy, and policy management and leadership. International Policy and Analysis Over several decades, theoretical as well as analytical approaches of public policy have developed within the social sciences, often interacting with the policy-making process. A large body of literature is now available to understand how social problems become public issues, how policy alternatives are selected, and what happens when policies are implemented. Policy-making and politics are inextricably linked and inﬂuenced by social and institutional contexts. Policy-making trends increasingly reﬂect of “multi-level governance”, with multiple actors and institutional layers involved. Courses offered in the theory and analysis of policy making precisely mobilize the main concepts of social sciences (political theory, economics, comparative politics, international law) to interpret the major changes inﬂuencing policy-making, with a broad international and comparative angle. Courses within this sub-category impart the ability to think creatively while designing and analysing policy. Special emphasis is devoted to the multi-level, trans-national, and intercultural dimensions of contemporary policy-making, ensuring the development of strong analysis skills.
