The Bachelor's program "Business - Public Management" with a focus on politics prepares students for careers in both the public and private sectors. They receive a comprehensive education in administrative law and administrative management, which is not only in demand in municipalities, federal states, state-related companies and at the federal level, but also offers optimal conditions for jobs in non-profit organisations or in the public sector. With expert knowledge in political science, law and communication, graduates of the program are well prepared for the future challenges of their profession.
Teachers with a wealth of experience and practical knowledge are available to support students in this course, which is unique in southern and western Austria. They provide expertise and practice-oriented insights into administrative action, insights into politics and the influence of law on state action. The imminent generational change in the public sector has resulted in a shortage of skilled workers, which opens up promising opportunities on the labour market for graduates.
