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.
