Master of Public Administration in European Studies (MPA-ES) at RWTH International Academy

The master's degree program "Master of Public Administration in European Studies (MPA-ES)" focuses on current and future socially relevant and technology-oriented topics and combines European competence with technical know-how. The degree program specifically addresses the changing requirements and needs of corporate practice and the public sector, which are created, in particular, by the digital transformation.

 

In addition to European policy education, especially technology trends are linked with EU-level policy areas in order to develop solutions for European and global issues. Application- and action-oriented learning, geared to practical everyday work in the public or private sector, are therefore at the centre of knowledge transfer. Specifically, the two tracks energy and climate as well as digital transformation are looked at in more detail, whereby the students have to choose one of the two options. In the specializations, a basic understanding of technology and engineering should be imparted and related to the political guidelines and regulatory mechanisms of the European Union.

 

In addition to RWTH lecturers, various external lecturers from practice will teach the degree program. The MPA European Studies is aimed at prospective students with a first university degree and at least one year of professional experience. The MPA-ES is a further education course offered by the RWTH International Academy under private law and therefore subject to a fee.
