The primary aim of the master’s programme is to enable the students to overcome the so called „Public Administration Gap” in their own professional contexts. Thanks to the way the programme is designed, the students will not only benefit from the content but also – against the background of their work experience – be able to supplement relevant competences and experiences and to apply as well as critically reflect them.

The overall qualification objective of the master’s programme is to equip the students with the theoretical-analytical skills, knowledge and competences that will enable them to independently, systematically and – based on scientific methods – apply their acquired skills in different leadership and management positions in the professional field of administrations which are active in international cooperation. This includes, in particular, also the fact that the various African locations of the partner universities and the presence phases as well as the strongly intercultural teamwork stimulate a process of personal growth that optimises the work in international cooperation.
