Advanced Management Programme in Public Policy (AMPPP) is one of the five Long Term Domestic Programmes (LTDPs) conducted by Training Division, D/o Personnel & Training. The AMPPP conducted at Indian School of Business-Hyderabad/Mohali (ISB-H/M) is partly on-campus and partly at the worksite itself. Unlike the other Long Term Domestic Programmes of this Department, which have full time components of institutional attachment, as well as international exposure (of 2 Weeks duration) embedded in them, the AMPPP was conceptualized as an officer friendly domestic training programme on public policy without any international component. The programme is open to officers of All India Services (lAS, IPS & IFoS), Central Civil Services (Group ‘A’), faculty members of State Administrative Training Institutes (ATIs) and also officers of the State Civil Services (Group ‘A’). The course builds competencies in Public Policy, Economics, Corporate Finance and Global Financial Markets, Technology and Society, Gender & Development, Ethics in Public Policy, and Public-Private Partnership. Five Batches of the program have already been completed and the 6th batch is underway, which is being attended by 14 participants.
