CGPM is working towards offering a Masters in Development and Policy in collaboration with the Economics Department by 2017-18.
While the government sector is the largest job provider in Pakistan, there is a considerable lack of quality development and policy education in the country. Offering programs in this area gives CGPM a chance to bridge this educational gap and at the same time advance its mission to impact the practice of development and policy.
LUMS as a higher education institution has earned an international reputation for its programs and is well-positioned to host CGPM given all the public and development sector expertise it has gained via the ASP-LUMS project. The Center, therefore, is uniquely placed to offer a Masterâ€™s program in Development and Policy.
The Master's program will be aimed at fresh graduates, mid-career professionals, and civil servants.
