A dual Master degree programme in a subject related to public administration is offered by each of the four GPPN partners. Selected students have the opportunity to spend one year studying a Master degree at their ‘home’ institution and one year studying a corresponding Master degree at one other GPPN institution in New York, London, Paris or Singapore. At the end of the two years, students receive the corresponding Master degrees from each of the two institutions.
The dual degree programme offers a unique opportunity for students to take advantage of the complementary curricula offered by the four institutions. All Master programmes include a capstone course, which is project work done in student teams for organisations in the ‘home’ country. All programmes include a summer internship for their students either as a requirement or as an option. Admission requirements relate to the institution where students apply and intend to spend their first year.
The new GPPN members, the Hertie School of Governance, the University of Tokyo Graduate School of Public Policy and the FGV EAESP, have developed dual degree programmes with some of the GPPN partner schools and are working to provide closer academic ties across the entire network.
