A special feature of the study programme is its interdisciplinary and international orientation, which opens doors to a wide variety of professional opportunities in an EU context. On the one hand, you will be immersed in political science and legal perspectives of the EU. On the other hand, you will build your skills in EU project management as well as in intercultural management and communication. Depending on your plans for the future, you can specialise in either EU Politics or EU Project Management in the third semester.

Study trips to the EU institutions in Brussels as well as to another EU member state or to a candidate country from Central and Eastern Europe will make the European Union "tangible" for you.

The study programme offers a successful combination of theoretical content and expertise. In the course of the programme you have the opportunity to get certified in International Project Management (Certified Junior Project Manager according to IPMA Level D).

What also makes this Master's programme special is the expert teaching staff: a mixture of practitioners and university professors, most of them with an international background. Some of the lecturers work in EU institutions in Brussels, others work in top positions in the administration or government, such as minister's offices or in regional governments. Partners of well-known law firms, as well as top-notch project managers, university professors of economics, political science and communication are all among the lecturers and provide the theoretical background. Apart from that, we bring current EU topics into the study programme by inviting guest lecturers.
