Ph.D. Program in Public Governance, Management e Policy (Public-GoMaP).

The challenges faced by public administrations and subjects collaborating on public policies are more complex every day. They require multidisciplinary skills, which constitute the backbone of the Doctorate in Public Governance, Management, and Policy (Public-GoMaP).

It is an interdepartmental Three-Year Doctorat involving the Departments of Business Sciences, Economics (Coordinator), Political Science, and Statistical Sciences: a multidisciplinary scientific approach, which focuses on the elements necessary to the management of organizations intervening in the design, delivery, and monitoring of public services.
