Management Training for the Public Sector

Since 1999, the University of Potsdam in co-operation with the Public Administration Promotion Centre (ZÖV) of the German Foundation for International Development (DSE) offers a mid-career, post-graduate degree programme in Public Management.

The Master of Public Management (MPM) program strives to equip public sector professionals with the analytical and practical skills vital to meet their societies' need for excellence in public management and government. The focus of the 14-months, full-time program is on qualified graduates in economics, business administration and management as well as the social sciences, with relevant professional background and leadership experience in public sector organisations. Applicants are to come mainly from the DSE's partner countries and respective institutions. All MPM courses are taught in English.
