Course Objectives
Interdependence between private enterprises and public institutions is a central factor in the evolution of modern economies; it appears in many different forms and is a key variable in international competition. An understanding of the features of the interactions between private companies and public institutions is a primary element in the education of a modern manager. This is further enhanced by globalization, regionalization and the digital economy. These phenomena, indeed, challenge the idea of a single government interface for businesses and require managers to understand governmental decision-making processes at the local, national, and supranational and international level. The objective of the course is threefold:
  • to develop an understanding of the influence of range and extent of business-government relations on the strategies and performance of private enterprises;
  • to consider how collaboration between public and private institutions (PPP) contributes to the feasibility, quality and effectiveness of public policies;
  • to develop concrete skills in order to manage these relations effectively at the National and International level.

Course Content Summary
  • The main differences and similarities between business and government, as well as between private and public management. The shift from government to governance, both at the national and international level.
  • The nature and the structure of public private partnerships (PPP). Privatization and contract management
  • Techniques and tools of public-private negotiations. Managing public procurement
  • The public role of the private sector: self-regulation at the National and International level, corporate codes of conduct and multi-stakeholder corporate regulation.
  • Techniques and tools for managing institutional affairs.
