General description

The quality of the Executive MPA programme is rooted in two principles: interdisciplinarity and practical application. The programme combines economics and social sciences to further students' understanding of complex governance challenges and management solutions. The participants work on international case studies and discuss phenomena against the background of their own work experience. Experts from all sectors regularly share current issues and discuss challenges and possible solutions with the students.

The flexibility of both time frame and content enables each student to adapt the programme to his or her individual needs. The programme offers professionals both sound theoretical knowledge and hands-on management skills, using modern teaching methods.

Participants choose their own area of concentration and can decide whether they wish to complete the programme full-time or part-time (i.e. in one year or in two years). In total, 46 days of attendance are required and 60 ECTS credits are acquired (both in the one-year as well as in the two year programme). Upon successful completion of the Executive Master Programme, the academic degree "Master of Public Administration (MPA)" is awarded.
