Public Management builds on the Bachelor's degree of the same name and supports the changes in the public sector: administration reforms and restructuring affects federal, provincial and municipal structures and also quasi-public companies. The degree program imparts know-how on operational and strategic public management, preparing you for active participation in modernization processes. Your challenge will be to introduce management systems and methods into the public sector and to deploy targeted design and control functions.

What we offer you

Since we are located in the Oktogon at Schloss Laudon in the 14th District of Vienna, together with the Federal Academy of Public Administration, you stand to benefit from our most important cooperation partner, the Federal Chancellery. Numerous Federal Government experts and many others from divested companies lecture in the degree programs. The Public Management program was developed together with the Federal Chancellery and is an academic program tailored to suit the public sector; it is practice-oriented and comparable in terms of the Bologna process to other studies and internationally. Practical relevance is also guaranteed through our Campus Lecture evenings, with lectures presented by prominent experts. We have strong ties not only nationally, but Europe-wide.

What makes this degree program special

The Master degree program builds on the Bachelor degree program in Public Management and is a further step towards the consistent implementation of a fully-fledged and globally comparable degree program tailored for the public sector. As opposed to university studies such as law or economics, the part-time Master degree program and also the Bachelor degree program are interdisciplinary, tailored degree programs which may be completed in the minimum period. It is the most effective tool for public sector (change) management.
Strategic and operational Public Management offers you the special mix of subjects you need for the development and control of complex change processes at local authorities or quasi-public companies and interest groups. Especially control often proved to be a weak point in the past, due to the lack of know-how in this field. You will enhance your visionary faculties as you deal with current trends and research issues in international Public Management.
