Internship and professional opportunities

Participation in an internship is not compulsory for Master’s students in the Public Policy and Management / Public Governance programs. However, we strongly encourage students to pursue relevant internship opportunities during their studies. Our goal is to facilitate placements for talented Master’s students in internships that align with their interests and skills, allowing them to engage in meaningful professional work.
In pursuit of this objective, we are eager to collaborate with institutions and companies to establish traineeships, even on a smaller scale, accommodating one or two students. These internships will feature academic oversight provided by senior colleagues from our department, complemented by experienced professionals from our partners’ organizations who will oversee and mentor the students’ professional work. Together, they will collaboratively determine the internship’s scope and thematic areas.
Moreover, the university might recognize the work experience acquired during these internships by awarding credits to the students, serving as an incentive for talented individuals to seize such valuable opportunities.

EAPAA – European Association for Public Administration Accreditation

The MSc of Public Policy has already been accredited twice by the European Association for Public Administration Accreditation – EAPAA. 

Only about two dozen organisations in Europe and only four in Central and Eastern Europe have so far been able to enter this “elite” club of public administration and public policy programmes. 

The EAPAA Accreditation Committee continuously encourages curriculum development and innovation based on high international standards. For more information about the criteria and the organisation please click here. 

EMPA – European Masters in Public Administration

The Public Policy and Management programme is part of the European Masters in Public Administration Network (EMPA), a wide network comprising several European universities who offer an educational programme in public administration. The EMPA network facilitates student and staff exchange between the partner universities.  

As part of the Public Policy and Management Programme, students get the opportunity to study abroad within the framework of EMPA. 

Upon successful completion of the coursework, students receive an original EMPA certificate, signed by both the home as well as the host university.
