Introduction

The master's degree in Advanced Public Management has been taught at the UB since September 2009 and currently incorporates several new features.

The degree is designed to provide specialist training in public administration and management techniques, and to give students the specific and cross-disciplinary profile they will need to conduct complex tasks as senior civil servants in government offices and the public sector in general, or in organizations associated with the public sector.

Having offered studies in Public Administration and Management since the academic year 1991/1992, the University of Barcelona has extensive experience in this area, which contributes greatly to the success of its postgraduate course offerings. The requirements for the course are covered by highly accomplished teachers with close ties to the professional environment and extensive experience of collaborative work with various areas of public administration.

Learning objectives

The aim of the course is to help students develop expertise in four areas of management: legal and administrative management, financial management, human resource management and public policy management.

Students must gain in-depth knowledge of each of these areas, the applicable legal frameworks and management tools, and current challenges facing management. This will provide an overall understanding of the different dimensions to government activity and the public sector as a whole, and the ability to tackle their functions and objectives from a management point of view.
