Regional Development and Governance

2 years

The Joint degree study programme is intended for those who want to learn how to manage regions and encourage their future economic growth. The ever-increasing demand for good public management of scarce resources has caused a rethink about how public sector management and governance is taught in higher institutions of learning. Through a complex mix of public economics and public administration subjects taught by two universities that are experts in both fields, the programme aims to impart knowledge to students so they can be highly qualified specialists or experts and analysts of public administration.

  • Interdisciplinarity as an essential characteristics of a public administration professional field, attributed with integration of subjects of public administration, management, policy, economics, law and other study fields.
  • Joint character of the programme, expanding opportunities of studies abroad, strengthening scientific and studies potential with the potential of the Vilnius University, supplementing a traditional theme and methods of public administration in Lithuania with traditions of Czech Republic.
  • Internationalisation, manifesting through teaching staff and students’ mobility, joint innovations of content and methods of studies of universities-partners.
