Public Policy & Governance
Preparing the next generation of public sector leaders with the skills necessary to tackle today’s global challenges.
Regardless of which geographical region or which policy area you are working in, you need the ability to dissect multidimensional policy issues, the tools to lead outside your area of expertise and a vision for governance in an age of interconnectivity and technological disruption. The CAS ETH PGA is a certificate programme designed for aspiring public sector leaders to enhance their knowledge, skills and confidence across these three critical dimensions.
Participants will learn to understand key governance frameworks and problems, dissect multi–dimensional policy issues and effectively lead across the spectrum of technical, human, and conceptual challenges.
Programme graduates will strengthen their ability to effectively implement public administration and governance projects and will position themselves to take on roles of increasing responsibility within their organisation.
One 15-day block.
Throughout the course, participants analyse best–practice cases in order to translate innovative solutions into their own political and administrative context. The CAS ETH PGA is structured around innovative, competency–based learning experiences, including simulations, peer–to–peer learning, excursions, and best-practices analyses, as well as expert lectures and group discussions.
