This programme develops the theoretical and technical expertise you need to work in the management of public administration (local, regional, national and international) and both non- profit and for-profit organisations operating in areas of public interest. It equips you to encourage the innovation and modernisation that are so essential to our response to the social and economic changes that society is experiencing today.

The curriculum helps you acquire a wide range of knowledge and expertise in economics and business, statistics and IT, law, organisation and sociology. Highly innovative teaching ensures you also acquire transferable skills by incorporating engagement and interaction with different external bodies, thereby preparing you to tackle the main innovative challenges – such as de- bureaucratisation, digitisation and sustainability – that public organisations are facing now or will have to grapple with in the near future.

Although the programme does not focus on any one specialisation, its content is flexible, allowing students to adopt different pathways in order to carry out more in-depth study in any of the four areas it addresses (quantitative studies, economics/business, law and sociology/organisation).
