specialisaties

specialisatie Public Management and Leadership

The Public Management and Leadership specialisation addresses public administration from an organisational and managerial perspective and prepares you to succeed as a leader in the public domain.

Public organizations perform important tasks in society. They provide crucial services to citizens and implement the policies that address increasingly complex societal challenges. Both management and leadership are vital for the performance of public organizations. Management is needed to ensure that public organizations operate in an effective, efficient and reliable manner. At the same time, leadership is necessary for public organizations to be adaptive, responsive and innovative. The Public Management and Leadership specialisation addresses state-of-the-art research and theory about the internal and external management of public organizations: from collaborating in networks and involving citizens in policy implementation, to organizing self-managing teams and leading organisational change. You learn how the performance of public organizations can be improved in order to effectively address societal challenges. In addition, the Public Management and Leadership specialisation aims to develop four leadership competences (networking, empowering, motivating and envisioning) that will enable you to succeed as a leader in the public domain.

specialisatie International and European Governance

The specialisation International and European Governance gives you a deep understanding of the interplay between the international, EU, and (sub)national governance systems.

In the specialisation International and European Governance you learn to formulate governance solutions to adress cross-border societal challenges. You will do this by applying state-of-the-art scientific knowledge of EU and International institutions and decision-making processes. It provides you a deep understanding of the complex, multi- layered nature of contemporary public governance and corss-border societal issues. You will gain state-of-the-art insights in how governments and stakeholders from the public and private sector can work together in complex multi-level governance systems. The IEG specialisation prepares you for positions in international organisations as well as national public and private sector organisations that need to cope with the implications of an increasing global policy-making environment.

specialisatie Economics and Governance

The Economics and Governance specialisation teaches you to formulate problem-solving approaches to concrete policy issues found at the intersection between economics and public administration.

The Economics and Governance specialisation aims to develop professionals able to analyse and address policy problems broadly, specifically in the field of social policy and market regulation. The focal point is on welfare states and markets. You learn about the role of government in creating, facilitating and controlling markets. You also examine the status of the current welfare state, such as the pension system, social security, labour markets, and income distribution in society; and the challenges the welfare state currently faces. You are provided a strong multidisciplinary preparation for a professional career in areas such as socio-economic policy- making or market regulation. The combination of applied economics and public governance forms a solid base for policy-makers, consultants and future leaders.

“We are experts on government”

“When I started my studies, I didn't really know what I wanted to do. I found the courses on the government and how public administration works and fits together the most interesting. That goes some way to explaining my choice of Public Administration: you learn what really goes on within government and how organisations function. The master's focuses on learning the theories on management and policy-making, and how to apply them in practice...
The fact that many students from different backgrounds take a pre-master's in order to be able to embark on this programme says a lot about the quality of the programme, in my view.

The master's is taught entirely at Campus The Hague, close to all the main government institutions and NGOs. As you're one of a small group where everyone is focused intensively on the subject material, it's very important to take part in the lectures. The work pressure is quite a lot higher than in the bachelor's; we are mainly conducting research projects and writing papers, rather than doing exams. About half the students are international, and they come from all over the place. You learn a lot in such a varied community, particularly about different forms of government administration.

As a member of the board of B.I.L., the Public Administration study association, I am involved in organising all kinds of extra events. Of course, there are parties, but there are also study trips to Brussels to visit the European Parliament, or lectures by alumni or inspirational speakers from government or the business sector. We do that because it's important that students start to build contacts with the world outside academia. Although my options are still open, I'd really like to work for a Ministry or a municipal council, dealing with environmental issues, for example.

Graduates of this master's are experts on the government and know how to find their way around this complex world. You have to be able to do that to make sure the public administration system works effectively. I would recommend this master's to students who want to know more about current issues in government and policy making. If you have solid background knowledge and a lot of enthusiasm, this could be the programme for you!”
