Public Sector Administration

Successfully managing processes in the public sector

The public sector offers a wealth of fascinating professions and activities to all those who like to deal with (business) administration processes – from change management to location marketing and environmental management. With their commercial expertise, our graduates are in great demand as junior staff who meet the requirements of efficiency, sustainability and economy in the public sector and thus make an important contribution to the common good. They can expect an exciting working day, great job security and transparent pay.

Gain work experience with a career-integrated degree course

During their career-integrated business administration course, our students develop into experienced professionals able to pursue careers in the energy and utilities industry, in local, district and state administrations, in bodies governed by public law (e.g. chambers of commerce) or business development agencies. The ideal combination of theoretical and practical phases enables them to develop holistic solutions, increase the efficiency of public services and modernise the public sector.

Combining the fundamentals of business administration with individual specialist knowledge

In preparation for these varied tasks, our students acquire a broad knowledge of general and public business administration, such as management accounting, marketing, human resources, economics and public law. With a focus on the utilities industry, administration and business development, they further their specialist knowledge and emerge thoroughly prepared for work in the relevant public sector.

A special advantage of the DHBW Mannheim is that we are not only the sole DHBW location to offer this course of study, but also the only career-integrated course in Germany that qualifies students to work as business developers.
