The international programme aspires to gather a diverse cohort, merging varied backgrounds and academic disciplines.

The programme's curriculum is meticulously crafted to teach students the art of policy evaluation, development, and design, intertwining elements of science, politics, and applied ethics. A unique feature is its emphasis on the practical skills of policy writing, tailored to different audiences.

Lars Lindblom, the programme director, emphasizes the programme's distinctive nature in the Swedish educational sphere, noting its philosophical and analytical approach to societal issues. "What to do about healthcare, who gets what care under what circumstances? How do we think about risk management methods? How do we consider fairness?"

Targeting students eager to delve into policy-making, the programme is more than an academic journey; it's a toolset for shaping the future. Lindblom believes that these inquiries are not only intellectually stimulating but also pivotal for societal progress and global betterment.
