We are very happy to welcome you to our homepage about the master programme "Public Management in International Cooperation –  Designing African-European and Intra-African Relations". 

In response to the global problems of the 21st century, international cooperation is becoming increasingly important. Solutions based on partnership and intercultural understanding are indispensable. Not only are the contractual contents of international cooperation and political integration projects decisive, but their administrative implementation plays a vital role.

Governmental and non-governmental administrations in both the global North and the global South need increased expertise in understanding international contexts. The Master's programme aims to bridge administrative barriers in international cooperation and collaboration, particularly between Germany/Europe and Africa, but also intra-Africa, for example between East and West Africa. 

The existing administrative expertise at Kehl University of Applied Sciences and its partner universities is used to enable students to implement and optimise sustainable process architectures in European-African and intra-African cooperation. This involves joint planning of objectives and measures, consideration of the elementary framework conditions of the specific partners, constructive design of success-critical core processes, appropriate distribution of central roles, establishment of joint evaluation and monitoring processes in order to stabilize partnerships, reduce costs, increase efficiency and implement contents in a sustainable manner.
