What you can offer

You may be working in the public sector already. You wish to complement your extensive experience with theoretical know-how and advance your professional career. You certainly have an interest in this field, even should you not have any professional experience yet. You are keen to learn more about government, law and economics. The government is a service provider in many fields, with economic and service-oriented responsibilities. To you, this means meeting citizens eye to eye. Processes to you equates to benefits to users and the potential of saving resources. Public Management to you is a challenge in terms of creativity and communication which you readily accept. You would like with your know-how to contribute to improving the interfaces between local authorities, international and EU institutions on the one hand and the public sector and private companies on the other.

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 experts in Federal Government and others from divested companies lecture in our degree programs. The Public Management program is an academic program tailored to suit the public sector and was developed together with the Federal Chancellery; it is practice-oriented and comparable to other studies and internationally in terms of the Bologna process. Practical relevance is also guaranteed through our Campus Lecture evenings, with lectures presented by prominent experts. We have strong ties nationally and across Europe.

What makes this degree program special

Public Management is the first Austrian degree program tailored to suit the public sector, combining economics, law, politics and administration. Compared to studies such as law or economics, it is interdisciplinary, practice-oriented and tailored to suit practical needs. You may complete the degree program part-time, in the minimum period. A special focus is on sustainability.
Great potential is lying underutilized in the public sector - not only in the field of energy supply but also in public procurement, public transport and in many other areas. Sustained economic activity in the public sector has an exemplary effect and also a broad spread.


What you will learn in the degree program

Your degree program rests on four important pillars: government and administration in the international context, integrated administrative management, economics and budgeting as well as personal development:

  • You will acquire and deepen your knowledge of the organizational structure and process organization of the European Union, the federal, provincial and municipal administrations and of government subsidiaries, including legal principles. You will in this respect also take cognizance of political, economic and social parameters.
  • Integrated administrative management focuses on action and modernization oriented approaches such as e-government, public governance, organizational development (change management) and quality management.
  • In the field of economics and budgeting you will explore public service and budgeting laws, human resource management, accounting and budgeting and management fundamentals such as controlling instruments as well as support schemes and procurement. You will be shown the differences between private sector and public financial systems and will analyze business and economic approaches and their application in public administration.
  • You will acquire fundamental communication and interviewing techniques, conflict resolution skills, mediation capability and project management know-how.
  • In the 6th semester you have an option of specializing in either law or social sciences.
