This challenging two-year programme focuses on key issues of Public Administration and Organisation Theory. The programme offers an in-depth investigation of societal problems and critical challenges faced by organisations - government agencies, not for profits, citizen groups, form - involved in public value creation.
Public administrators respond to societal challenges by initiating reforms to make public management less bureaucratic and more accountable, activating and enabling citizens, helping businesses become more competitive while enhancing social responsibility, and supporting civil society initiatives to provide voluntary community services.
You will gain the theoretical knowledge and methodological skills to analyse these initiatives and organizational and governance processes, such as strategic management, policy design and delivery, citizen engagement, public accontability, institutional learning. Our programme will also help you understand and analyse the classic questions of Public Administration and Organization Theory as they are playing out in contemporary contexts. It will also provide you with the tools to design effective intervention strategies.
