Admissions Open for UBC's Master of

Public Policy and Global Affairs program 


The University of British Columbia’s newly launched professional Master of Public Policy and Global Affairs (MPPGA) program will equip students with a broad policy foundation of strong analytical and technical skills – plus knowledge in development and social change, sustainability, resources, and energy, as well as global governance. Students will engage in hands-on policy projects to inform their perspective on global issues, including cross-Pacific dynamics. The MPPGA program will graduate policy professionals prepared to create boundary-crossing solutions to address urgent issues facing the world in the 21st century.

The MPPGA program is seeking ambitious, creative, and globally-minded students preparing for leadership positions, ready to navigate complex policy problems while driving positive global change.

Announcement: The University of British Columbia's Master of Public Policy and Global Affairs Program (MPPGA) has received formal approval from the BC Ministry of Advanced Education.

We are accepting applications for Fall 2015 contingent upon space availability. Please contact the Program Office directly before applying:
