AIMS

 

Public servants specialised in legal-administrative and financial management tasks are an essential component of civil life. The constitutional demands of efficacy and service in the general interest require a decentralised, modern, efficient Administration, giving citizens free access to public services and ensuring that they can enjoy their rights. Public servants must have a thorough knowledge of administrative procedures and public policies, a vocation to serve the public and a sense of ethical commitment. They must also have the right skills and techniques to support public work (IT, accounts, economics, sociology, etc.). In short, the aims of this course are established with particular regard to the needs of public organisations, while also developing competent professional knowledge of the private sector, including the use of technological and administrative tools common to both.

Through this course, many contacts have been made with public servants in many branches of State, Regional and local authorities, administrative agents and others, particularly as many of the associate lecturers on the current Diploma Course in Public Administration are professionals with a thorough knowledge of legal and financial management and of the educational needs of Public Administration Graduates.

PROFESSIONAL PROFILES

 

The aim of the Degree in Management and Public Administration is to offer students a comprehensive training in theoretical and practical aspects,  providing them with a solid grounding in the necessary and relevant legal, administrative, political, financial, economic and social contexts in which Public Administration operates. This education extends beyond the scope of Administration, thus enabling future graduates in Management and Public Administration to enter Public Administration-related areas of the private sector, should they so desire.

The foregoing is conducted within the framework of the following general principles, which are applied to all the Degree course contents:

 

  • Respect for fundamental rights and for equality between men and women. The Degree incorporates an innovative subject which looks specifically at “Ethics and Gender Equality in public administration”, complementing the general subject area of public policies and management, and expressly incorporating a value now given great weight by the Spanish Legal System.
  • Respect and promotion of Human Rights and the principles of universal accessibility and design for all in accordance with Royal Legislative  decree 1/2013, by which approves the Text of the General Law of rights of the people with disability and of his social inclusion. 
  • In accordance with the values of a culture of peace and democracy, prioritising a vocation for public service.

 

Professions for graduates

The proposed degree will provide graduates with the professional profile of a manager specialising particularly in public, administrative and financial law. Thus, to a greater or lesser extent, the degree is also of significant value to those private and business sectors requiring an employee highly qualified to work in areas of management dealing with Public Administration. All of this highlights, as mentioned previously, the relevance of the degree for professional practice as administrative managers, to the extent that these were consulted during the process of planning the Degree course and, we are pleased to say, returned favourable reports.

The Degree Course will be implemented year by year, in order to take possible problems of space or infrastructure into account.  Additionally, bearing in mind the similarity between the contents, credits may be transferred between the Diploma course and the new Degree course, as will be explained.

Once a course has been phased out, the subjects corresponding to the course will no longer be taught. Students who do not wish to take the new degree course subjects are entitled to sit four examinations in the two academic years following the end of each year. Any students wishing to continue their studies after sitting and failing these tests will be required to follow the new plan, according to the adaptation system established in the new plan.

Where appropriate, a credit equivalence procedure has been established for students following the current course programme, in order to guarantee their rights with regard to teaching and assessment as established by the law.
