Mundus MAPP/MUNMAPP is a two-year-long international joint Masters program in Public Policy, offered by  four top-ranked European institutions: Central European University (Private University; Austria), 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.

Changes in 2020

From 2020, the CEU tracks of Mundus MAPP will be offered in Vienna, Austria, by Central European University (Private University). CEU Vienna will deliver the same program components as has been hitherto (and is currently) delivered by CEU Budapest. These changes reflect the recent transformation of Central European University into a bi-campus university.

Although the UK is likely to leave the European Union by the time of academic year 2020/21, there is no change in the role of the University of York in delivering the program.

Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree scholarships will not be available for the 2020-22 edition of the program. However, institutional scholarships offered by the Consortium institutions will continue to be available for the highest rated applicants for the 2020-22 study period. Erasmus Mundus scholarships will resume as of 2021.
