GCPP has helped me develop a structured perspective on viewing and solving public policy problems. It has helped me become more systematic and rigorous in approaching public policy issues and has provided me the skills to disseminate views, and participate in the public debate on policy, using social media and other platforms.
The Graduate Certificate in Public Policy is Takshashila's flagship educational programme. The 12-week course is networked and largely online, and meant for working professionals and full time students from across the world. The course is offered three times a year. Applications are currently open for the summer cohort.
