The Master-of-Arts in Transnational Governance (MTnG) is the first of its kind, tailor-made to educate and train a new breed of policy leader able to navigate the unprecedented issues our world will face during the next decade and beyond.
Complex forces at play in today’s governance frameworks are now the rule, rather than the exception – a multiplicity of issue-areas and actors, whether public or private, local or international, governmental or NGO.
The challenges resulting from these interdependencies will prevail at an accelerating rate due to technology’s rapid disruption of almost every industry affecting the political balance of power in every country. Most traditional public policy, public administration and international relations degrees take the State as the main unit of analysis and policy action.
The Master in Transnational Governance is designed to provide the knowledge necessary to navigate and excel in a context where the processes of governing take place beyond the State.
The European Union is known as one of the world’s most advanced laboratories in the methods of transnational governance. With this as the point of departure, our master's programme was developed to extend these methods beyond Europe, to Africa, the Americas, Australasia and beyond.
