MA Public Administration



Public administration is concerned with the implementation of governmental policy that serves the wide population, carrying political activity and decision into actions and developing public programmes for the well-being of the society and the citizens. The aims of public administration are linked to democratic values like equality, security and justice.

Public administration makes use of several other disciplines such as: organizational behavior and theory, finances, human resources, politics, law and even ethics and philosophy. Comparable to business administration, public administration distinguishes itself through the non-profit orientation of the administrative activity. Like an MBA, a Master in Public Administration (MPA) is vital for students willing to pursue successful careers in the public sector, working in governmental institutions, departments and agencies.
