About the program

In a social context with constant change, there is increasing pressure in the public & social profit sector to implement policies in an efficient manner. With fewer resources, a constantly changing legislation and civilians making more demands, managers in public and social profit sectors are faced with big challenges.

  • Antwerp Management School wants to send a powerful impulse to professionalization in public instances and social profit organizations, embedded in a social awareness perspective, by providing practice-based courses customized to the specific management needs of the sector.
  • The postgraduate course ‘Public & Social Profit Management’ is based on the idea that organizations in the public sector work from a social perspective and serve no commercial purpose. They work within a very specific context. Our faculty has both academic and real-life expertise and an affinity with the public and social profit sector.
