6100 - PUBLIC MANAGEMENT
Course taught in English
Go to class group/s: 31
Main purpose of this course is to introduce students to basic principles and recent developments in the field of public management. Public sector is a crucial component of the business environment, as an economic actor, in terms of impacts on the private sector and in terms of impacts on the citizen daily life. Public management has changed enormously in recent years as result of reform initiatives in many countries. Thereby, this course will examine both empirical developments and new theories of public management with an international perspective. Through active participation in this course students should gain the theoretical foundation and the managerial skills needed to understand public sector organizations. The course will ultimately enable students to deal consciously with public administrations as individual citizens, as entrepreneurs, as private sector employees, as public sector consultants/suppliers or as public sector employees.
