Management and Public Affairs

General objective

A new area of public affairs is calling for a new kind of manager of public affairs. A new awareness of individuals and groups is forging a new public policy paradigm, where the frontiers between the public sector, private sector, organizations and civil society are blurred. From action to interaction, from individual intelligence to collective intelligence, the rules of the game have shifted from the public good to the common good and public action 2.0, where public affairs have become the affairs of everyone.

To evolve between these different layers, from the local to the global perspective, from public-private partnerships to organization and civil society, new skills are required for managers of public affairs. Today's evolving policy environment is not just shared: it is co-developed, co-produced and co-managed by empowered individuals.

This policy stream equips students with those skills, with particular focus on management, negotiation, crisis communication, management of information, behavioral management, regulation, private-public partnership, digital transformation of organizations, public-decision making and public budgeting. This stream also incorporates a multidisciplinary approach and adopts a multidimensional and panoramic vision of public affairs that embraces a plurality of values, ethics and cultural contexts.

Specific features

Core courses:

  • Public Management
  • Public Decision-Making
  • Strategic Business Management
  • Public / Private Partnerships
  • Lobbying

Career opportunities

Typically, graduates from this policy stream pursue careers in public management or public sector consulting. Students can have careers in local, national or international administrations, in public affairs departments of private firms, in intergovernmental and non-governmental organizations or in transnational firms and, in consultanting companies and public-private sector partnerships.
