Credit Courses in Public Policy
The credit course in Public policy looks at the myriad challenges in policy making and implementation, and examines feasible alternatives involving adjusting and course-correction. With a pool of a diverse faculty comprising of academicians and practitioners, our credit courses involve a confluence of incisive analysis of social issues plaguing our society and robust, evidence driven solutions to bring about changes. Greater recognition of diversity and importance of analyzing processes, context, and possible outcomes is stressed upon. Sub national and transnational forces shaping the way we look at institutions and their role is deliberated. The courses offer better understanding of policies framed by governments, and how they change over time.

Modules that we offer:
This course looks at the history of legal process with an understanding of various legal concepts. The intersection of the fields of law and economics helps to both define justice in terms of efficiency, and to predict the effects of legal rules, and is an excellent tool to analyze laws.
Offering a more holistic approach to the study of economic theory, this module explores basic economic theory in Keynesian, as well as the Chicago and Austrian Economic schools of thought. The intersection of economics and public policy helps to understand both--the role policy plays in creating a conducive environment for economic growth, and the role individuals play in shaping policy.
While Business Studies courses in India sufficiently explore economic and management concepts, our module shifts focus to the policy landscape that examines how businesses are affected by policy decisions and the role governments in a market-based economy.

“I really liked how the course built up on several concepts and enabled me to recognise different viewpoints—the 'threading' together of concepts from public choice theory to spontaneous order to a free market enterprise were really appreciated.”~ Tushar Gidwani

The course gave me the opportunity to understand what hurdles and challenges I will have to face in operating a firm. From telling us about the provisions governing businesses under the New Companies Act, to exploring why some sectors have flourished and others have not, the course was an eye-opener for me. I will definitely want to read more about competition and its impact on expanding consumer choice. I look forward to engaging with CCS on future projects, as working in public policy is a passion for me!~ Sonali Mishra
