On Saturday 17th July 2017, the Master of Public Policy and Management Programme (MPPM) Student Research Project (MSRP) Presentation (Cohort 3) was held at the PAPRSB IHS Extension Building. Seven MPPM students were divided into 3 groups to present their final research projects.
The topics were “A healthy living policy: With a specific focus on obesity”, “Addressing the issues of unemployment through a sustainable strategy to incentive work in Brunei Darussalam” and “To formulate an austerity plan for the Brunei Government” respectively. These presentations were assessed by Tuan Haji Mohd Rozan bin Dato Paduka Haji Mohd Yunos, the executive director of the Centre for Strategic and Policy Studies (CSPS) and Dr. Mohamad Azmi Hj Mohamad from Sultan Omar ‘Ali Saifuddien Centre for Islamic Studies (SOASCIS).
The event was attended by the Assistant Vice Chancellor (Global Affairs), Dr. Joyce Teo Siew Yean, the Director of Institute of Policy Studies, Dr. Mahani Hj. Hamdan, and other academic members of the university. This was the third time that IPS conducted such an event, where MPPM students have an opportunity to share their policy papers and receive feedbacks on their proposals.
