The Graduate School of Public Policy’s (GSPP) mission is to train professionals and leaders to understand and implement sound public policy and good governance to improve the quality of life of people. We do this by pursuing excellence in teaching, research and executive development that focus on key policy and leadership challenges.
Since its launch in 2012, GSPP has maintained a strong strategic partnership with the National University of Singapore’s Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy. Together we have been working closely to establish GSPP as the public policy school of choice in Central Asia. GSPP incorporates scientific research into its teaching to provide one of the most innovative and progressive master’s programs in the Central Asian region.
GSPP’s degree programs include the Master in Public Policy, Master in Public Administration, and the PhD in Public Policy. Our students who come from the public sector, international organizations, non-governmental organizations, and the private sector, have the opportunity to spend 2-3 weeks under the Singapore component of our Master programs and up to 3 months in the PhD program.
GSPP’s faculty are actively engaged in research in civil service reforms, modernization of the public service, natural resources management, policy analysis, advocacy and consultancy to government institutions and international organizations on a wide range of public policy/administration issues in Kazakhstan and beyond.
