The Master's degree programme of Innovative Governance and Public Management aims to challenge the traditional contents and sector-oriented learning approaches that are typically applied in the field of public administration and public policy. It brings together elements from social sciences and engineering, combining the strengths of soft and hard applied sciences – resulting in a spirit of solution-focused and resource-oriented entrepreneurialism with interdisciplinary and close relations to society. It provides students with a unique learning environment, enabling them to come up with smart solutions and sustainable learning outcomes in the field of public administration and management. In addition, it teaches the contexts of public-private partnership, public value creation, co-production and deliberative democracy as well as innovation systems, digitalisation, and smart solutions.

The programme equips graduates with excellent learning and networking skills. They will be able to understand and manage complex networks, service production and value chains. These skills and competencies are particularly relevant given the changing nature of the public and private sectors; such as the blurring of boundaries between the two, the pressure for responding swiftly to societal demands, as well as the enormous socio-economic and political challenges facing European societies for years to come.
