Overview

Many students enter into our programme with the belief that they can change the world. While we appreciate this approach, we strive to educate students to become practical idealists – to find tangible and actionable solutions which they can one day implement as public servants. International Public Management (IPM) therefore helps foster students’ critical and reflective attitudes towards society, exposing them to a range of pressing issues and helping them think critically and analytically.

In the first year, students engage in a range of subjects required by the field of Public Management, including (but not limited to): economics, international law, sociology and public administration. In year two, students begin to practically apply this knowledge within the context of group projects and case studies whereby international political challenges are addressed. The last two years of the programme grapple with cases that governance actors such as governments and NGOs struggle with at present. The latter is achieved through an applied research module and minor of your choice in year three and an internship and thesis in year four.

We already know you like to stay on top of the global headlines and have a hunger to learn and solve global problems. That’s why you’re finding out about IPM. So, in year one, we’ll build on this and introduce you to current issues in economics, international law, sociology and public management. In year two, you’ll apply this knowledge to international and political cases in hands-on group projects. The last two years of the programme tackle challenges facing government institutions and multinationals. This is the focus of a research module in year three and your internship and thesis in year four.
