Master’s course, part-time
Apart from strong personal motivation, acting and leading in a political environment also requires a thorough understanding of management and responsibilities of leadership. The Master’s degree program for the first time in Austria positions political management at the centre of continuing education. Political systems combined with business administration and management methods are at the core of the curriculum. The Master’s degree program will prepare you for leadership positions in politics and management, also in companies and non-governmental organizations.

Working at the intersection to a political system or in a managerial function in politics requires openness, capability for discourse, a good perception of social problems and a willingness to compromise, yet also assertiveness. It is also important to consider your dialog partner's point of view and thereby to surmount ideological barriers. Whilst many see this as a challenge, you see the opportunity to find good and constructive solutions together. You are part of a political organization yourself, or you need to deal with corporate political decision making. Your concept of politics is of a long-term process which impacts the future and your actions are far-sighted. You will, in a management position, be able to implement processes and decisions with a sense of responsibility and prudence. The Master's degree program will add the finishing touch to your above skills.
The Master's degree program in Leadership, Politics and Management was introduced in the 2012/13 academic year. This postgraduate degree program is unique in Austria to this day. This is because for the first time managers or persons on the leadership track in political and semi-governmental organizations can now qualify in this field specifically. The degree program combines detailed know-how about political systems with business administration, leadership and management strategies. Our management training for political professions offers you the advantage of studying together with your "peers". This means that your fellow students in the degree program will hail from the political or economic arena, just like you. Your project work also stands to benefit from this interaction. You will combine the knowledge you gained in your own professional practice with the sound scientific know-how of the course. Our lecturers, all of whom are also engaged in their chosen professions, are your guarantee of the practical application of your studies. Our university additionally also presents evening lectures (Campus Lectures), delivered by top notch experts and free for all to attend.
Your purpose with these studies is to obtain excellent political management skills. This demand is satisfied already in the structuring of the curriculum. This included numerous political role players. This will meet the high expectations you have of the degree program, since two distinguishing features of the Master's degree program are its direct relevance to your professional practice and the first class network. Our invaluable contacts enable you benefit from excursions which will include discussions with top political players. Our university also has profound management and administration skills relevant to the public sector. Our successful cooperation with the Federal Chancellery (Public Management degree program) and the Ministry for Finances (Tax Management degree program) are cases in point.
Apart from your recognized academic graduation as a Master of Arts (MA), there are additional benefits for you in your Master's degree program. We can offer you the opportunity of obtaining important international certifications:
The objective of the Master's degree program is to teach you the personal and technical prerequisites enabling you to manage complex organizations in the political sphere and in institutes and companies involved in political processes.
