Master of Public Management

Campus Part time 2 years September 2017 Netherlands Enschede

The Master of Public Management (MPM) programme offers a multidisciplinary, analytical and creative approach to the issues and problems faced by managers in the public sector. [+]

The management of government and other public organisations is subject to increasingly high demands.

 

A changing society confronts the government with new challenges to which it must respond and new conditions it has to meet. Finding answers in terms of policy and fulfilling the conditions in terms of democracy, effectiveness and efficiency test the internal performance of public organisations, particularly their management. To successfully complete its tasks, management has to integrate the various aspects of performance and ensure that work is carried out in a professional manner. Consequently, there is a growing need for multidisciplinary managers. The Master of Public Management (MPM) programme offers a multidisciplinary, analytical and creative approach to the issues and problems faced by managers in the public sector.... [-]
