    Public policy today is in a global, multi-level crisis. Tipping the scales towards a more secure peace, social justice and environmental sustainability – to name but a few – requires innovative and entrepreneurial engagement for the common good. Building a multi-disciplinary and global institution committed to the values of open society and creating strong and flexible links between research and practice is one way of responding to what is, overall, a failure of policy elites to tackle the most urgent problems of our time. The Department of Public Policy at Central European University offers four master's degrees in public policy, and the public policy track of the Doctor of Philosophy in Political Science program. The degree programs are tailored for students from around the world seeking careers in the public, private, and not-for-profit sectors at the local, national, European Union and international levels. Successful engagement for the public good in today’s world also requires a better, fairer representation of diverging perspectives. To that end, DPP is vigorously inclusive, attracting both students and faculty from diverse backgrounds and tapping into a wide variety of knowledge sources. DPP’s students are the future social and political entrepreneurs, equipped to make innovative contributions towards resolving the paramount public policy challenges of the 21st century.

    • Linz, Austria

    In the 21st century, which is characterized by ever faster progressing development, education and further training are a valuable asset and more important than ever. Complex technological and economic issues and a great responsibility towards the environment present companies and their managers with decisions that are made on the basis of experience, knowledge and competence. Lifelong learning and further professional qualification is therefore essential. It is the task of the training providers to provide the infrastructure for these further training opportunities. KMU Akademie & Management AG, which was founded in 2006, was aware of this responsibility from the start. However, she also recognized that working people who want to study part-time face a major challenge: reconciling work, family and studies. With this requirement in mind, those responsible at the KMU Akademie developed a concept for distance learning that was independent of time and place. Since 2011, KMU Akademie , in cooperation with Middlesex University, has been offering part-time online courses that meet precisely these requirements.
