Gleisson Rubin, specialist in Public Policies and Governmental Management, took office as ENAP´s president this month and emphasized on the importance of offering a service of quality and the opportunity of internationalizing their academic program.
ANESP (National Association of Specialists in Public Policies and Governmental Management) also joined the meeting to support the partnership. João Aurelio, President of ANESP, believes that “to invest in this partnership is a way to put into practice some of the missions of ANESP, such as working to improve the capacitation of specialists in public policies and governmental management”.
The global center in Rio de Janeiro will work closely with ENAP and Columbia University in order to assist both institutions in pursuing this collaboration.
