Mundus MAPP is a two-year-long international joint Masters program in Public Policy, offered by four top-ranked European institutions: Central European University, Budapest (Hungary), International Institute of Social Studies of Erasmus University Rotterdam (the Netherlands), Institut Barcelona d'Estudis Internacionals (Spain) and the University of York (UK). Established in 2007, the program operates as an Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree Program funded by the European Commission.
Mundus MAPP directly responds to the educational needs created by the rapidly changing global environment and new public policy challenges. The program equips graduates with the conceptual knowledge and hard skills that are necessary for understanding and decisively intervening in contemporary transnational policy problems, from climate change to international terrorism or financial regulatory failure. It provides a detailed and systematic understanding of how political institutions, processes and public policies operate and interact from the global political economy through to national and local levels with a direct focus on European engagements at these levels of governance. Inter-disciplinarity and practical application of conceptual knowledge are hallmarks of Mundus MAPP.
The last cohort of students under the current Erasmus + Erasmus Mundus funding scheme started their studies in September 2016. Prospective students applying for the 2017-2019 study period will be admitted Mundus MAPP, the Mundus Masters Program in Public Policy. Erasmus Mundus scholarships are no longer available but the consortium offers other types of financial aid. The members of the consortium, the academic content of the program and the joint Master of Arts degree in Public Policy awarded to our students upon graduation will remain the same. Further details about the future of the program is available here and information on the admissions requirements here.
