One of the priority areas established by Tecnológico de Monterrey in its Mission is the topic of public administration and policy. In this context, the PhD in Public Policy program (DPP) is perfectly suited to strengthening this area, since the doctoral program seeks to contribute to society by: professionalizing public administration; improving public policy in the three branches of government and in the three powers; fomenting sustainable national and regional development; preparing citizens who are committed to development, rule of law and good governance; and establishing a healthy association between public administration, the private sector and civil society.

  • Train specialized human capital in public policies with a high level of technical rigor in economic analysis and the sophistication of organi- zational and institutional analysis.
  • Prepare world-class specialists who contribute to the democratization and effectiveness of public administration processes and foster the State-Society relationship.
  • Prepare leaders who will participate in international civil society organizations and autonomous bodies that support institutional processes of change.
  • Prepare researchers who will generate cutting- edge knowledge in the field of public policy.

This program is aimed at:

Public officials from different government branches and levels who are interested in deepening their knowledge in the areas of public administration and public policy.

  • Private-sector professionals who wish to specialize in government-enterprise relations.
  • Researchers and professionals from the area of social studies who are interested in generating cutting-edge knowledge in the fields of public administration and policy.
