Masters (MA)

Course description:

The increasing complexity of the tasks carried out by the State and the manner in which it performs them require us to look at public service and the modernisation of public administrations in a new way. Today’s institutions need decision-makers with interdisciplinary knowledge who are capable of understanding and solving complex managerial, economic, political and legal problems. Switzerland’s multilingual culture necessitates a multicultural approach to management in the public and quasi-public sectors.
