Your pathway to policy leadership

The Executive Master of Public Policy (EMPP) degree at Crawford School is the only program of its kind in Asia and the Pacific. It will furnish you with the skills and knowledge to provide ethical policy leadership at the highest levels and in an increasingly complex world.

Is the EMPP for me?

The EMPP program is an excellent fit for aspiring leaders already engaged in public policy, working in or alongside government, or those looking to make a lateral move into the public service from an established career. You will need a Bachelor degree or international equivalent (with a minimum GPA of 5/7) and a minimum of seven years’ experience in policy work.

Why choose the EMPP?

The EMPP program will equip you with superior leadership skills, advanced conceptual and analytical abilities, and a comprehensive understanding of policy research needs. You’ll feel confident communicating with stakeholders at all levels, tackling complex policy analysis, and closing high-level negotiations.

During the program, you’ll be constantly stimulated by real-world case work that explores the latest questions around governing in complex policy environments. Such cases from around the globe include: Australia’s National Disability Insurance Scheme; China’s One Belt, One Road infrastructure initiative; and the implementation of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.

The EMPP program embraces a global focus on contemporary public policy. It explores public service and governance issues such as foreign direct investment and public-private partnerships, managing global health epidemics, multilateral approaches to mitigating climate change, and community-based instruments for upholding human rights.

What are my career options?

Once you’ve attained your EMPP, you’ll be in consideration for a host of employment opportunities. Our EMPP graduates have secured directorships with major policy institutions and government departments; have been seconded to coveted positions with multilateral development agencies; and have moved into influential policy roles in both the public and private sector.
