The University of Applied Sciences - Public Administration and Finance Ludwigsburg specializes in the education of management in public administration. The approximately 2800 students of the University are taught by a number of professors and lecturers. The two faculties
Management and Law (Faculty I)
Tax and Business Law (Faculty II)
offer five Bachelor degrees and two Master degrees. Over 98% of all initially enrolled students complete their chosen study programme.
The bachelor study programmes enable the students to develop their academic, personal, social, team-building and business skills. The didactical concept encourages scientific work and is designed to give graduates a sense of responsibility in the context of a free democratic and social constitutional state. Graduates are able to apply their acquired knowledge, skills and competencies in the public sector.
A distinguishing characteristic of the Bachelor programmes is the combination of academic work and practical experience in the form of traineeships in public administration at state and local level. Small study groups ensure that excellent support can be provided to students by the academic staff. Applicants for the Bachelor programmes must have a valid higher education entrance qualification (e.g. A-levels).
The University offers two Master programmes: The full-time Master programme in European Public Administration (MEPA) prepares graduates for a career in senior civil service positions. The Master of Public Management (MPM) is a part-time programme with a special focus on leadership and is designed for public administration employees seeking a senior management position.
