Government at any level, from local to global, is essential for the development of society. It is among the most complex current professional settings, owing to the variety of activities and sectors, their interdependencies as well as the interplay between politics, policy and management.

This MSc provides candidates with the hard and soft skills they need to successfully lead and work in this environment.

The program is organized into two main learning blocks:

  • First, students are equipped to carry out policy analysis and evaluation through advanced analytical techniques, to design strategies and to manage projects
  • Second, they are supported in developing their unique professional profile through a careful selection of electives and a wide range of international opportunities.  A choice of majors has been designed to meet the specific interests of students and the needs expressed by the job market.

The program places a strong emphasis on interaction with the professional world. Students are offered a variety of opportunities to explore the main challenges and drivers for choosing a specific career trajectory in the sectors covered, as well as for developing the skills that are needed to successfully work in that sector.
