Master of Science in Public Management

Master of Science in Public Management

The Master in Public Management, delivered as double degree with Corvinus University of Budapest and in collaboration with the University of Hanoi, Vietnam, aims to face a specific need of public administrations: to support coordination in policy design, implementation, and performance management, between different components of the public sector.

MSc Program

The Master in Public Management delivered by the Department of International Studies (DEMS) of the University of Palermo (Italy) is taught in English and takes the professional and cultural perspective here described.
It adopts a practical approach, involving the discussion of concrete case-studies and the empirical work developed in computer laboratories. To this end, participants are involved in teamwork and supported step-by-step by our faculty in advancing in their own learning process.
A comparative analysis approach is adopted, to enable students to understand and practice differences and similarities between several systems in the world, related to the generation of value through policy design and management in the public sector.
Such approach also implies the possibility for students to spend one or two semesters attending courses or developing their thesis under the supervision of professors or other professionals working in other countries in the world.
