Executive Master in Public Management

Master in Public Management - Program


The Master in Public Management is taught in Dutch and has a modular structure and encompasses a total of 60 credits (30 credits a year). The modules consist of thematically clustered lectures and seminars, in which advanced scientific knowledge is tested in actual assignments and government challenges. The topicality of every module is carefully monitored. During the leadership lab and skills lab modules, we will work on practical leadership skills during a two-day session. Finally, you will write a master thesis on a subject of your choice as a conclusion to your study.

“During two fascinating years, we stepped out of our own comfort zone and received new frameworks that are supported by scientific research. All this combined with educational exchanges of experience with colleagues from the same field. Loved it! ”

— Dries Janssens, Directeur Duaal Leren en Ondernemerschapstrajecten, SYNTRA

Master’s thesis

The master’s thesis is the course conclusion and can be a project out of your own work environment, the theme can be entirely self-determined. During the two academic years you will be working on it under guidance of a promotor.

"For the past two years, every Tuesday to be precise, I have made the opposite route of the Tour of Flanders. Unfortunately, the roads were not cleared for me... Nevertheless, it was a fascinating and challenging course. The many inspiring lessons provided the necessary supplies that I have been able to fully use to successfully complete this master's thesis."

— Kris Dobbelaere, Directeur IVLA, alumnus 2019


Our experienced faculty accompanies you on over the two academic years and ensures that the master’s reputation, and that of Antwerp Management School, grows through our continuous education and networking activities and sustained ranking performance.
