Public administration is concerned with the implementation of governmental policy that serves the wide population, carrying political activity and decision into actions and developing public programmes for the well-being of the society and the citizens. The aims of public administration are linked to democratic values like equality, security and justice.

Comparable to business administration, public administration distinguishes itself through the non-profit orientation of the administrative activity. Like an MBA, a Master in Public Administration (MPA) is vital for students willing to pursue successful careers in the public sector, working in governmental institutions, departments and agencies.

After pursuing a course degree in public administration, graduates should be able to analyse the nature and the causes of social problems, understand interests and values of various stakeholders, design solutions to problems and implement or mediate the implementation of the solution.
