Course Summary


The MSc Public Policy and Management programme will develop your capacity to understand, analyse and manage organisations in the public sector.

The programme provides students with state-of-the-art knowledge of theories, doctrines, and techniques for making public sector entities perform efficiently and effectively. You will develop practical skills to design and implement systems of public service delivery, to devise applications of digital technologies to public services, to lead innovation and change, and to manage public financial resources.

You will have the opportunity to learn about and discuss some among the crucial issues that government face nowadays, from healthcare to education, climate change to natural disasters, from migration to poverty reduction, and from the cultivation of capacity building to the development of digital strategies. A wide range of optional modules will provide you with the opportunity to explore several public sector-related topics.

The School of Finance and Management is excited to continue its collaboration with Practera, building on the success of the previous SFM Virtual Industry Projects. These bespoke work-based learning projects are designed to grow your professional skills and network through working with a team of SOAS students to tackle a real-world business challenge.


The aim of this module is to introduce the philosophical, theoretical and practical bases of conducting academic research. The course covers issues related to all essential steps in the research process, which combines the qualitative and quantitative approaches of conducting research. Another important feature of the course is to include at least three sessions of computer practice in the environment of SPSS.
