The degree programme in Public Management equips students with a range of managerial skills (economic, legal, political science, sociological, statistical), a sound understanding of the operational processes and rules of public administrations, a good grasp of the requirements of companies and citizens, the ability to analyse projects and objectives, and to recognise and overcome the complexities typical of bureaucratic organisations, and an excellent command of the cutting-edge technological tools used for administrative innovation and for communications with users.
