Curriculum development of Joint Master in International Public Administration and Management
Start date: Oct 1, 2010,
The MIPAM curriculum development project develops a curriculum for a joint master program in European public administration. The consortium members are universities and institutions from 7 EU countries (Belgium, Bulgaria, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands) which have many years of experience in higher educational cooperation. These universities train students in public administration and public management for their national and local bodies. The MIPAM project adds a new dimension to the present public administration education in Europe, a common, European state-of-the-art knowledge. The projects produces first of all a joint curriculum, educational materials, CD-s, handbooks etc. The main product of the project, the curriculum, aims to set new standards in European public administration studies and is available to other educational institutions as well.To meet the needs of the education of the 21st century the project uses several ICT in the new educational materials, to ensure flexibility, mobility and transparency in the joint master course. The language of the developed master course is English, the international language, which makes the new course available to all European and non-European students. To reach language diversity, it is also planned to provide the curriculum and the materials in the language of the country in which the university is situated, accompanied by inter cultural training and language courses. For dissemination and exploitation purposes we involve our existing international network of universities and institutions including professors and experts on the subject of PA training (IFPAM).In 2012 the members of the consortium accredit a joint master course based on the MIPAM project. In September 2012 the first year of the course is launched as a pilot year. The implementation and evaluation of the courses of the pilot year will be supervised by the steering committee of the partners.
