The Program in Economic Policy Management (PEPM) has become a 12-month program for mid-career professionals leading to the Master of Public Administration degree. Students will start the full-time program in June and finish the following May. PEPM focuses on training professionals and policymakers in the skills required for effective design and implementation of economic policy in market economies, with a strong emphasis on the economic problems of developing and transition economies. The full-time program is especially suited for mid-career professionals who may only be able to take off a short time from their current employment.
In addition to our economic policy focus, students may opt to focus on global energy management and policy, which offers a very strong set of courses focused on traditional energy markets as well as alternative energy.
PEPM was formed in cooperation with the World Bank and still maintains its connection to the Bank, through our Joint Japan/World Bank Graduate Scholarship program, providing full scholarships each year for up to 12 students from emerging economies; https://sipa.columbia.edu/the-joint-japanworld-bank-graduate-scholarship-program
