The management of government and other public organisations is subject to increasingly high demands.
A changing society confronts the government with new challenges to which it must respond and new conditions it has to meet. Finding answers in terms of policy and fulfilling the conditions in terms of democracy, effectiveness and efficiency test the internal performance of public organisations, particularly their management. To successfully complete its tasks, management has to integrate the various aspects of performance and ensure that work is carried out in a professional manner. Consequently, there is a growing need for multidisciplinary managers. The Master of Public Management (MPM) programme offers a multidisciplinary, analytical and creative approach to the issues and problems faced by managers in the public sector.
This programme for professionals is a parttime study for those who have a career in Public Management and has completed a higher education study.
The degree programme consists of six co-ordinated modules, each addressing a crucial aspect of public management. The first year addresses such themes as organisational management, financial management and policy management, the second year Information management, human resources management, politics and management.
