China and Europe face similar challenges when it comes to quality of life of citizens, social cohesion and economic competitiveness. Over the coming years, both parts of the world will experience large changes in welfare policy and institutional development. The Master's degree in Public Management & Social Development enables graduates to be able to understand and work with these challenges and changes.

The program gives you an overview of different welfare states and different welfare models in relation to China and Europe as well as a presentation of how the welfare state works and how it affects the economy and society. You will work on how the different models are supported by different national business systems. The program has a special focus on social innovation processes, which in recent years has transformed the traditional relationship between the public and the private.
