In a society which is becoming more and more globalized, high-performance workplaces require multi-skilling, to solve problems in a professional way and to facilitate multiple interaction in European and International contexts. This applies to civil servants as well as those who work in the public sector at large. Whether in state or local government, international, European or EU organizations, or any institution (public or private) providing citizens with public services, the same applies, as the selection procedures for jobs in the public sector demonstrate.
The Master in Economics and Management of the Public Sector (EMPS) aims to prepare students to work effectively with a variety of stakeholders in complex, multi-faceted public organizations. Graduates will be capable of taking responsibility for the effective and efficient management of resources, to work productively with other public servants, to solve legal problems, to acquire and use the relevant information, to communicate in writing and orally, and to work with information technologies. They will thus receive the education necessary to succeed in a competitive job market and to pass the selection procedures necessary to pursue a career in the public sector, at a local, State, European or International level.
The Master in Economics and Management of the Public Sector aims to train professionals interested in entering administrative areas of governmental departments, governmental administrations, territorial institutions and associations, private institutions and foundations with public responsibilities, as well as private companies working in contact with public administrations.
