The Master's Degree in Public Administration is intended for executives and managers in public administration, as well as students and specialists with adequate qualifications and interest in the area.

Based in a multi-disciplinary perspective, this course provides students with the analytical foundations to apply knowledge and previously acquired skills in a professional context. Its students become able to not only identify problems and formulate solutions to the various issues that arise in public administration, but also to communicate information, support arguments and develop ideas before both specialists in the discipline and non-specialized audiences.

Director(s) message

João Salis Gomes
David Ferraz

The Master's in Public Administration seeks to provide an academic response to the demands of knowing and doing more and better by the state and administrative society in general, faced with processes of change that call into question theories and practices consolidated over time. The strong link to public administration, present in the genesis of the Master's Degree, has marked its evolution, creating the conditions for it to make a significant contribution to the ongoing processes of administrative modernization, particularly through the dissertations and project work produced within its scope. With an experienced and qualified teaching staff, attended by students from various Portuguese-speaking countries, we believe that the Master's is a good option for anyone who wants to have an informed and rigorous vision of the future of public administration.
