The School of Government celebrated some significant milestones at the prize-giving and anniversary ceremony on 11 November 2015.
Our Master of Public Policy (MPP) programme is 40 years old and our Master of Public Management (MPM) has turned 18.The MPP was first taught in 1975. It was offered through other schools including the School of Political Science and Public Administration, before the new School of Government was established in 2002.
In the period since its inception, many hundreds of New Zealand and international students have taken their MPP and MPM skills into public sector agencies around the world.
