Welcome to the postgraduate Master of Public Management (MPM) at the University of Potsdam!

The EAPAA accredited MPM Program is a science-based and practice-oriented mid-career program designed to meet the demand for appropriately trained managerial staff in the public sector of developing and transition countries.

With the Helmut-Schmidt-Scholarship Program (formerly Master Scholarships in Public Policy and Good Governance, PPGG) the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) has been supporting highly qualified mid-career professionals since 2009. The scholarship is awarded to future leaders from Africa, Latin America, South Asia, Southeast Asia and the Middle East who want to promote democracy and social justice in their home countries.
