Master’s Programme 'Public Administration'

This programme trains graduates to work in federal state agencies, local government, state and municipal institutions, public sector entities, international organizations, non-governmental organizations and various analytical structures, as well as private firms that often do business with government agencies.

A distinctive feature of the programme is that brings in public administration professionals to teach, thereby allowing students to develop relevant skills in public administration in combination with fundamental theoretical knowledge.

Over the course of more than 15 years, around 500 students have graduated from the programme, and most of them have built successful careers in the public sector.

The programme is internationally accredited by the European Association for Public Administration Accreditation (EAPAA). It is the first and, so far, the only programme in Russia that meets the highest European standards.
