Program description

Leadership for Change – Governance for Sustainable Change

By interacting with staff members from various disciplines – business, governance, politics and international relations – as well as with different societal stakeholders, students will learn to foster new forms of engagement across sectors of the economy and society. The program prepares the graduates to work in the private, public or third sector in tasks that involve analysing, planning and steering complex change processes.

The administrative science specialisation provides students with sound academic skills for anticipating, analysing and responding to the complex, dynamic challenges facing contemporary public sector organisations and institutions. Key topics include governance in the context of public sector reforms, changing modes of public service delivery, and evidence-based policy-making.

A cross-cutting theme of the specialisation is the role of public governance in fostering socially, ecologically and economically sustainable societies.The studies consist of cross-disciplinary joint program studies (30 ECTS), specialisation-specific advanced studies (25 ECTS), elective studies (25 ECTS) and the master’s thesis (40 ECTS).
