Too often, leaders have a thorough understanding of their own fields, but lack the necessary experience and conceptual knowledge to effectively manage projects, budgets, teams, or changes in general. In times of growing internationalisation and Europeanisation, managers also need to have cross-sectoral management skills and the ability to shape and actively control complex decision-making processes.
The EMPM curriculum contains both management and governance dimensions.
Participants develop the skills needed to motivate their staff, design and improve management systems, increase both individual and organisational performance, initiate strategic developments or promote organisational change and innovation.
At the same time, the programme improves policy understanding and focuses on governance models that innovatively tackle cross-sectoral issues in the context of the growing geographic complexity of certain policy areas. Participants learn to assess future policy scenarios and to apply appropriate analytical methods for mastering them.
Participants work on international case studies and discuss phenomena against the background of their own work experience.
