The Mohammed bin Rashid School of Government has been established as the premier research and teaching institution focusing on public policy in the Arab world. Established to promote good governance through enhancing the region’s capacity for effective public policy, the school is also committed to the creation of knowledge, the dissemination of best practice and the training of policy makers in the Arab world. This is reason enough to opt for programs at this exclusive institution
The School’s comprehensive programs act as the bridge between MBRSG’s world-class research and the policy-making community in the region as well as globally. The integration of current and relevant policy issues is debated at our seminars and forums and bringing these into the teaching space adds another dimension to the learning curve. The multi-disciplinary study of public policy, innovative teaching and research, as well as meaningful engagement with policy practice is reason enough to influence your choice.
It is a great honor that the school not only carries the name and respect of the architect of this great enterprise, but he continues to patronize the School, the UAE’s Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum.
In the words of Dr. Ali Sebaa Al Marri, Executive President of the School –
“It is indeed a great privilege for the School to be named ‘Mohammed Bin Rashid’. Our Ruler is reputed worldwide for leading by example and as a visionary who continues to surprise the world with his proactive and long term ideas for Dubai and the UAE. He is also the force behind initiating government creativity.”
This affirmation of faith lends great credibility to the institution and should be a major motivating factor in the choice for further studies in Public Policy.
Public policy at today’s crossroads is in a global, multi-level crisis and a positive engagement to tip the scales towards more secure peace, social justice and environmental sustainability, requires creativity and groundbreaking engagement for the common good. MBRSG was setup as a multi-disciplinary and global institution committed to strengthening leadership qualities and by creating strong and flexible links between research and practice MBRSG has been responding to what is, overall, a failure of policy makers to tackle the most urgent problems of our time. Successful engagement for the public good in today’s world also requires a better, fairer representation of diverging perspectives. To that end, MBRSG is all-encompassing , attracting both students and faculty from diverse backgrounds and tapping into a wide variety of knowledge sources. MBRSG’s students are essentially the future social and political frontrunners, fully equipped to make innovative contributions towards resolving the paramount public policy challenges of the 21st century.
