Because meeting tomorrow’s challenges depends on policies put in place today, researchers and highly qualified experts in public administration are now considered as major assets to government institutions. IDHEAP’s doctoral program aims to train future governmental actors to master both theory and methodology of the different domains of public administration and how to apply them in their career.
At IDHEAP, research on public administration issues is grounded on a wide variety of topics, and this provides doctoral students with the multidisciplinary training needed to develop a range of versatile skills. Thanks to its ten different research units, the institute can offer future doctoral students a wide choice of subjects in an environment that promotes exchange and complementarity.
The continuous education courses which IDHEAP provides to public administration executives, such as its Master in Advanced Studies in Public Administration (MPA) and its different Certificates of Advanced Studies (CAS), enable the institute’s doctoral students to be in regular contact with day-to-day practitioners of public administration. Therefore, study for a doctorate in Public Administration links research and daily real-world actions of public servants.
