What you can offer

You are keen to advance your professional career and you recognize the potential of public governance. You have many ideas in the fields of restructuring of public institutions and companies which you are keen to contribute. This also involves critically scrutiny of budgeting processes and controlling structures. You have an interest in the adaptation of management systems to suit the peculiarities and the special mandate of the public sector. You like working with people and are interested in managerial functions.

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 Federal Government experts and many others from divested companies lecture in the degree programs. The Public Management program was developed together with the Federal Chancellery and is an academic program tailored to suit the public sector; it is practice-oriented and comparable in terms of the Bologna process to other studies and internationally. Practical relevance is also guaranteed through our Campus Lecture evenings, with lectures presented by prominent experts. We have strong ties not only nationally, but Europe-wide.

What makes this degree program special

The Master degree program builds on the Bachelor degree program in Public Management and is a further step towards the consistent implementation of a fully-fledged and globally comparable degree program tailored for the public sector. As opposed to university studies such as law or economics, the part-time Master degree program and also the Bachelor degree program are interdisciplinary, tailored degree programs which may be completed in the minimum period. It is the most effective tool for public sector (change) management.
Strategic and operational Public Management offers you the special mix of subjects you need for the development and control of complex change processes at local authorities or quasi-public companies and interest groups. Especially control often proved to be a weak point in the past, due to the lack of know-how in this field. You will enhance your visionary faculties as you deal with current trends and research issues in international Public Management.


What you will learn in the degree program

The Master's degree centers on strategic and operational Public Management and Leadership.

  • You will kick off by expanding your knowledge on Public Management and Public Finance, Organization and Law, including their environments and stakeholders.
  • In strategic Public Management, you will be dealing with fundamental questions and issues of strategic change.
  • In operational Public Management, you will be applying methods for implementation of your concepts:
    • In public business administration, you will be working with accounting, balance sheets and outcomes based control of your agreed objectives.
    • Based on cases from your own practical experience, you will learn to develop and structure organizations.
    • You will learn how to apply quality and knowledge management.
  • You will continue the development of your leadership personality and debate ethical aspects of the public sector. You will deal with methodical research principles, interview techniques and data and information management.
  • You will select a topic for your Master's thesis, based on current discourses and research issues relating to Public Management.
