KTU was the first university to organise Public Administration studies in Lithuania and this programme has now been successfully delivered since 1993. According to the national ratings of study programmes, the KTU Public Administration master programme has been rated as the best master programme in the field of public administration in Lithuania. From 2016 to 2019 our programme has consistently claimed first place out of the six Public Administration master programmes delivered in Lithuania.
The uniqueness of the programme lies in its data-driven approach and innovative didactics applied in a learning process which enables a contemporary understanding of global transformations and local responses of public governance. The programme aims to educate not only the competent observer, but also responsible and active public administration experts.
The mission of the programme is to prepare highly-skilled experts to have knowledge in public and governance theories and understanding practical contexts. Also to be able to assess public administration processes from a comparative perspective as well as to apply different methodologies in analysing public administration problems as well as solving them in an ethical way.
The educational strategy of the programme is based on the following principles:
A part-time Public Administration master programme in a blended learning mode is available in the Lithuania regions of Tauragė, Kretinga and Marijampolė.
