Vienna’s city management is a model for many political systems and urban centers. At the same time, the federal capital is the location of important international organizations and diplomatic missions. Against this background, the English-language, interdisciplinary Master course aims to combine the topics of diplomacy, administration, political management and applied political science. High potentials in international and municipal organizations will develop their leadership and management skills and specialize in international affairs and urban policy.
