The Institute of Asian Research, along with partner units, the Liu Institute for Global Issues and the Institute for Resource Environment and Sustainability, is proud to launch UBC’s professional Master of Public Policy & Global Affairs program. The MPPGA program will incubate future policy makers with a deeper understanding of policy-making processes, the interconnectedness of global networks, and a cross-sectoral understanding that will foster a healthier, more sustainable future. It aims to play a catalytic role in developing cross-Pacific policy networks.
