PCPM Executive Education

Overview Master's Programmes

All over the world...

governments and public institutions are being increasingly challenged to provide high-quality services and to respond swiftly and more closely to citizens’ needs. The complexity of organizational and policy change requires professionals to have a new understanding of public service issues and a broad range of skills.

Master of Public Management (MPM)

Particularly in developing and transition countries, public administration requires decision-makers with interdisciplinary skills who are capable of solving problems in management and communication, thereby helping to drive public administration reform. Designed to meet the demand for appropriately trained managerial staff, the curriculum content of the postgraduate Master of Public Management (MPM) program, offered since 1999, is divided into three specialization streams:

  1. The specialization in Public Policy and Administration (PPA) is designed to equip public sector professionals with the analytical and practical skills required to meet society's need for improved efficiency and effectiveness in public management.
  2. With a similar orientation, the Global Public Policy (GPP) specialization provides the frameworks to meet the challenges of managing public policies that transcend national borders.
  3. The specialization GeoGovernance (GG) provides a science-based additional qualification to professionals working at the interface of administrative and environmental policy.
