Programme

The public sector faces an increasing demand of public services by its citizens. Simultaneously, the room for maneuver is reduced due to increasing fixed government spending (for example, for debt service). Therefore, the public sector increasingly is subject to scarce regimes, as they are also present in the private economic sector.

An in-depth management knowledge is required in order to meet these challenges effectively. The course will teach you the professional and methodical knowledge and competences that prepare you to undertake management tasks in the public sector, i. e. planning, organizing, staffing, leading, and/or controlling in public organizations.
