For us, in addition to quality, your peace of mind comes first.Presentation and ObjectivesPresentationAny country that wants to progress needs political leadership, but it is also true that it needs efficiency and impartiality in the Administration, which requires a competent and honest civil servant. And even more, it is essential that these two spheres combine so that political ideals can become realities that bring welfare to citizens, without loss of freedom. This is only possible if an intermediate instrument is introduced that allows both types of actors -politicians and employees, public officials- to work in the same direction. That instrument is the professionalized managerial function. In it must be present professional public managers, who encourage the creation of a space where communication between the political and administrative universe is possible; who transmit political decisions in language understandable to officials; and those who expose politicians to the opinions of the bureaucracy, so that they can understand them and share them if necessary.
Without them, the clash of values ​​and priorities is inevitable. It is urgent to strengthen the synergies between the political and administrative roles with the main objective of offering an effective service to the Society.goalsThe Master's Degree in Senior Public Management is designed to provide training for action (policy applied) to public managers.
