Prof. Abel Idowu Olayinka, Vice Chancellor

The University of Ibadan is happy and proud to be one of the universities in Africa offering the Master of Research and Public Policy (MRPP). The teaching and learning pedagogies that the programme promotes are unique and innovative. The introduction of MRPP is timely in view of the deplorable state of public policy making and implementation in many African countries.
