As technological progress continues apace, policy-makers and society are faced with increasingly complex challenges. Expertise in a single discipline is no longer sufficient to develop broad-based solutions. With its new structures, the Bavarian School of Public Policy in cooperation with the Technical University of Munich (TUM) provides the ideal setting to develop and fine-tune your political skills and to shape society.

Our expanded course offerings

  • Processes of innovation and transformation both in Europe and abroad,
  • Consequences of growing digitalization for politics and society, and
