Start application for Public Administration

The world is facing major problems: an ecological crisis, the near collapse of our financial-economic system, rapid shifts in technology and issues of public safety. The master’s programme in Public Administration will provide you with the skills and conceptual tools to engage in descriptive, explanatory and normative research and analysis of the political and administrative issues of our time. The entire programme takes a comparative approach, looking at governance and policy-making practices in EU and non-EU countries.

You will be trained to apply problem-oriented research and analysis to the design of performance-oriented policies. Your results will be thoroughly attuned to the demands of effectiveness and feasibility, and will address the requirements of procedural norms such as constitutional legality and democratic legitimacy.
