Executive Master of Public Administration

The Executive MPA is designed for leaders who want to acquire the knowledge and tools needed to address the challenges of modern governance. The programme provides participants with a solid foundation in principles of governance, public policy and management, empowering them to lead teams and organisations, shape decision-making and manage change in the workplace. Participants choose one of three areas of concentration, which cover subjects with ever-increasing relevance for managers, decision-makers and leaders working in the public sector, business and civil society:

  • Leading innovation and managing change
  • Digitalisation and big data
  • Global governance challenges

The programme accommodates the busy schedules of working professionals and can be studied full-time in one year or part-time in 2-4 years. The curriculum's modular format allows participants to design their studies according to their individual interests and timetables.


A core set of modern theories of governance and management combined with a broad choice of practice-oriented electives on the challenges and complexities of modern policy-making represent the foundation of the Executive MPA programme. In addition, participants complete skills trainings for personal and professional development.
