Global public policy leaders must develop and implement solutions in an increasingly complex, challenging, and changing environment. New actors and influences—both local and global—are emerging on the policy scene, and the need for flexibility and innovation in policy processes and solutions is increasingly clear. That is why NYU Wagner and University College London have launched a Global Executive MPA degree program that will educate and prepare experienced leaders to tackle the world's most challenging issues in this new global context.

Join us to hear a panel of senior policy experts from different fields and organizations discuss how the global public policy landscape is changing, how they see its future, and what that implies for the skills and backgrounds that practitioners need.

Welcome remarks from:
David Coen, Director of the School of Public Policy, Head of the Department of Political Science, and Professor of Public Policy at University College London


Marco Cangiano, Assistant Director of the Fiscal Affairs Department at the International Monetary Fund (IMF)

Ani Dasgupta, Director of Knowledge and Learning, The World Bank

The Honorable Susan Molinari, Vice President of Public Policy and Government Relations for the Americas, Google, Inc.
