Government at any level, from local to global, is essential for the development of society. It is among the most complex current professional settings, owing to the variety of activities and sectors, their interdependencies as well as the interplay between politics, policy and management

This MSc degree programme aims to provide candidates with the hard and soft skills they need to successfully lead and work in this environment. The programme is organised into two main learning blocks. First, students are equipped to carry out policy analysis and evaluation through advanced analytical techniques, to design strategies and to manage projects. Second, they are supported in developing their unique professional profile through a careful selection of electives, a related internship programme and thesis and by offering a variety of opportunities to study abroad. Majors have been designed to meet the specific interests of students and the needs expressed by the job market.
