Post-graduate students of IIM-A’s public management and policy (PGP-PMP) spent six weeks at international universities as part of their internship.

The course gets students from various fields, including Army, Navy, medicine, police, banking and the corporate sector. Towards the end of the year-long course, students go through an international attachment module and get to visit reputed institutes like University of Geneva, Georgetown University and Carnegie Mellon Institute, US.

Aradhna Patnaik, an IAS, who visited University of Geneva, said, “The Geneva experience taught us how organisations like UN, ILO, WHO and UNICEF work. The six students, who visited the university, also got back feedback for India. The best part of the PGP-PMP course is that the participants come from a variety of backgrounds. There is a lot of scope for interaction apart from the invaluable international exposure.”

Talking of the course, its chairman, prof Sebastian Morris, said, “The course trains people from the public sector, private sector and government servants. IIM-Bangalore will soon adopt this model.”

Mohit Kumar, a qualified medical professional, said, “I joined the programme for knowledge from various fields. This is the sole course that has this option.” Kumar visited Georgetown University along with 15 others.
