Characteristics and objectives
The Course of study aims to provide knowledge and skills in the political-administrative, economic, statistical, legal and managerial disciplines for the understanding of innovation policies and strategies in public and private organizations, and to manage or cooperate with the management of the processes of programming, evaluation and implementation of public policies, as well as related regulatory and negotial processes. It also provides tools to manage citizenship activation processes both in face-to-face interactions and in virtual dimensions.
The Course includes a set of basic classes in the fields of the science of administration and public policies, aiming to provide a broad picture of the skills useful to the administrations seen as organizations -and their ways of operating. In this perspective, the knowledge related to the science of administration is combined with economic courses oriented to the themes of development and planning; with administrative law and Community law, which combine to provide the skills to communicate in globalized environments; with courses aimed at providing the critical tools for the processes of opinion formation and collective decisions and for the collection and processing of information which will be used as the basis for planning and evaluation.
The training activity is divided into a widely common path and is specified through two curricula (limited to some courses): European Governance and Government of the administrations.
The European Governance curriculum offers essential tools such as the study of European private law and European Union policies for local development; these are backed by classes in the historical and political field, aimed at inserting the skills acquired in the trends and dynamics of the European area.
The curriculum in Government of Administration is characterized by the study of the evaluation of performance and services and of labor law in the public sector. These disciplines are complemented by others, of a historical and legal nature, aimed at deepening the knowledge about the characteristics of public administrations, the relationships between them and citizenship, as well as on central issues for the organization and design of services, such as the protection of health, of the user and of the consumer.
