University Masters in Management of Public Companies (1st level)
Course not running
The Masters aims to investigate at a specialist level the most relevant questions of theoretical and practical interest necessary to access managerial positions in public administrations, in the context of present regulatory code, according to DPCM no. 295/2004.
Regulations on access to managerial positions in public administrations require that access to the qualification of manager in non-economic state and public administrations and bodies should take place by examination-based competitions set by the individual administrations or by a selective competitive training courses announced by 31 December every year by the Scuola Superiore della Pubblica Amministrazione in Rome.
Admission to the competitive training courses for managers is open (Art. 28 of D.Lgs. 165/2001) to graduates with a specialised degree, a postgraduate research doctorate, a diploma of specialization or other post-graduate specialised qualification issued by an Italian or foreign university or by the main public o private training institutions.
The DPCM of 29 September 2004 no.295 was published on 14 December in the Official Gazette and regulates the methods by which postgraduate qualifications are recognised, see art. 28 comma 5 of D.Lgs.165/2001.
Art. 2 of the Decree states that for postgraduate qualifications issued by universities the recognition procedure is not necessary. It also identifies which are to be considered the minimum requisites for the postgraduate qualification to be "useful" for access to the competitive course for public management.
The possession of a qualification with the characteristics given in comma 1 of art.2 enables those with a three-year degree to avoid the limit of the number of years of work experience in the context of the public administration (5 years) and to have the qualification recognised as a preferential requisite for access to the competitive course.
The above mentioned Masters has been planned independently of the Masters in Management and Innovation in that the course materials are specifically connected to the role of manager (management and control) both in the public administrations and in non profit companies.
Moreover only with this initiative, which supplements the existing offer of postgraduate courses, are graduates offered the possibility of achieving the qualification necessary for access to a management career in the public administration as established by DPCM 295/2004
The objective of this Masters is thus to prepare for a managerial career in public companies.
Enrolments may also be accepted from those who wish to learn more in general about instruments for the management and control of organisations which do not aspire to monetary remuneration of the capital invested.
