  • Duration: 24 months


The Erasmus Mundus Masters Program in Public Policy (Mundus MAPP) directly responds to the educational needs created by the rapidly changing global environment and new public policy challenges. Mundus MAPP equips graduates with the conceptual knowledge and hard skills that are necessary for understanding and decisively intervening in contemporary transnational policy problems, from climate change to international terrorism or financial regulatory failure. It provides a detailed and systematic understanding of how political institutions, processes and public policies operate and interact from the global political economy through to national and local levels with a direct focus on European engagements at these levels of governance. Inter-disciplinarity and practical application of conceptual knowledge are hallmarks of Mundus MAPP.

Four leading European universities joined forces to deliver Mundus MAPP: Central European University in Budapest (Hungary), Institut Barcelona d’Estudis Internacionals (Spain), the International Institute of Social Studies of Erasmus University in the Hague (Netherlands), and the University of York (UK). Building on Mundus MAPP’s successful track record, the integrated curriculum provides a uniform core of policy studies as well as modules specific to particular mobility tracks, drawn predominantly from the fields of International Relations, European Studies and Development Studies. The four mobility tracks allow students to specialise in Political Economy and Development, Governance and Development, and European and Global Public Policy, respectively. Each mobility track includes a field trip to a relevant public sector organisation and an internship.

Mundus MAPP’s unique combination of strong conceptual foundations with practice and policy- oriented learning will provide graduates with transferable skills and subject-specific knowledge for embarking on or furthering professional careers as policy-makers, policy-analysts and advisors in the civil service, international organisations or the corporate and non-governmental sectors, and for enrolling in doctoral programs in a range of relevant subjects. Mundus MAPP graduates will have a thorough knowledge of European policy making milieus and solid institutional and personal networks that will take them forward to leadership roles and constructive future engagements within Europe and the rest of the world.
