For experts on science & research, foundations, parliaments, civil service, associations, international organisations, non-governmental organisations, opinion research centers, political consulting, journalism, public relations New Educational Dimensions for the Management of Politics, Administration, and Organizations The public sector finds itself in one of the most important phases of transformation in the history of modern statehood. The following examples are indicative of this profound change: European integration; new global and regional interdependence; the call for more efficient and more citizen-oriented administrative management; debates about privatization, public-private partnerships, or debureaucratization; the introduction of Electronic Government; the crisis of confidence in public institutions, with issues concerning ethical standards and new forms of political communication. This doesn't just include public, communal, and international administration, but rather public enterprises, non-government organizations, non-profit organizations, and political authorities such as alliances, parties, and parliaments. The new generation of executives in the public sector need ever-more management and strategic expertise to prepare them for making complex decisions in the dynamic environment of politics, economics, and society – on both a national and an international level. ZU offers an innovative training and research program in the form of management-oriented politics and administrative sciences with international relations, in which social scientific elements of organizational research and policy research are combined with economics, management skills, and the most important elements of public law. In this context, the faculty of Public Management & Governance sees itself as a research and education laboratory which promotes problem-centered training for the public sector in interdisciplinary dialog,...

Decision-makers and entrepreneurs are being confronted more than ever before with demands that can no longer be met by the functional range of classic business management alone. Conventional management training has reached its limits, as argued by the renowned Canadian management theorist Henry Mintzberg and the Stanford economist Jeffrey Pfeffer, and ironically lamented by "The Economist" in its 2010 yearbook: "The decline of the MBA will cut off the supply of bullshit at source." p. 122.

Best Masters in Economic Studies in Germany 2018. Decision-makers and entrepreneurs are being confronted more than ever before with demands that can no longer be met by the functional range of classic business management alone. Conventional management training has reached its limits, as argued by the renowned Canadian management theorist Henry Mintzberg and the Stanford economist Jeffrey Pfeffer, and ironically lamented by "The Economist" in its 2010 yearbook: "The decline of the MBA will cut off the supply of bullshit at source." p. 122. So what now? For a deeper understanding of these new challenges – unavoidable crises aside – knowledge in communication sciences, cultural sciences and political sciences are imperative. Medialization in the form of "CEO branding" and the harmonization of "product-, equity- and employer branding" within the national culture are as much part of the challenge faced by today's top decision-makers as interaction with political networks, regulation and deregulation trends, privatization initiatives and public-private partnerships. Since 2003, ZU has reacted to these challenges with a new (by German standards) type of research-oriented business qualification for generalists. The novelty lies in the combination of business administration and economics with cultural studies, communication and media studies, as well as aspects of political science and public administration. A program that questions the economy. We have already had enough answers. The pro­fes­sors know this one best: What are the eight most im­por­tant ques­tions oc­cu­py­ing the fac­ulty of Busi­ness and Eco­nom­ics?

Master Public Economics, Law & Politics

Leuphana University of Luneburg
Campus Full time Part time 4 - 8 semesters October 2018 Germany Lüneburg + 1 more

The effectiveness and legitimacy of modern states is largely determined by the complex interaction of politics, law, and business and economics. Lately, in particular, these interactions have been affected by dynamic transformation processes resulting from globalization and internationalization trends. This has led to the formation of modified statehood forms and new patterns of relationships between state, society and the economy. The Master's degree in Political Science – Public Economics, Law and Politics applies a theoretical and methodological, as well as problem-oriented and integrated, political analysis of these dynamic interactions.

CONTENT AND RATIONALE

Studies in political science at Leuphana Graduate School combine disciplines, which traditionally deal with the relationship of state, society, and business and economics. Questions, issues and approaches to solutions resulting from these intricately interwoven relationships are analyzed and treated from the joined perspectives of political science, economics and law. The focus is placed on the causes, background, as well as social and economic effects and consequences, of government action. Thus, the course aims at achieving a comprehensive reflection on the relationship between politics, law and economics by applying the tools provided by political science as a discipline, reinforced by interdisciplinary observations. This course of study is part of the scholarship program Public Policy and Good Governance of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). Every year, DAAD selects around ten scholarship holders from Central and South American, African and Asian countries to come and study at Leuphana Graduate School. They enhance the experience of studying on this program... [-]
