What our graduates say:
It has been a great opportunity to study in an inspiring and demanding international environment.
The master programme helped me to understand public-private partnerships. The programme enabled me to develop my analytical skills. Thanks to these studies I was able to kick-start my professional career.
The IMP programme was an essential component of my career development, equipping me with the skills needed to succeed in an international public policy environment.
After completing the master programme, I started off my career in public service as a trainee at the Council of State, where I was a project officer and responsible for digital transformation.
IMP has given me the tools to take on this great professional opportunity.
To this day, I still use knowledge from the European policy, comparative policy or global governance courses (to name a few) in my professional life.
