Course content

The Master's program in Public Governance prepares you for a leading position in the public sector all around the world. Built on a governance, legal and economical foundation, you will be trained in building innovative strategies to tackle today's wicked problems and are prepared for facing the challenges of tomorrow.

You develop the skills necessary to tackle such complex challenges:

  • Learn to address challenges in networks and coalitions of public organizations with citizens, non-state actors, and businesses.
  • Fundamentally rethink and innovate core policies and processes. If cities, networks of businesses and organized crime become 'smart', public organizations also have no other option but to develop new and smart strategies.
  • And consider these challenges simultaneously on a local, national, and global level.
