Organisation profile

The Graduate School of Public Policy’s (GSPP) mission is to improve the quality of life of people in Kazakhstan and Central Asia by training leaders to improve governance through excellence in teaching, research, and executive development that focuses on key policy and leadership challenges. It aims to become the leading public policy school in Kazakhstan and the region and strives to raise the standards of governance through professional public policy education and research. Since its launch in 2012, GSPP has maintained a strong strategic partnership with the National University of Singapore’s Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy. Together we have been working closely to establish GSPP as the public policy school of choice in Central Asia. GSPP incorporates scientific research into its teaching to provide one of the most innovative and progressive master’s programs in the Central Asian region.
