As part of their unique curriculum, the MSc BA Students with the Specialization in Public and Nonprofit Management embark on a study trip to Vienna to learn about Austria’s government institutions and to dive into its administrative context. In particular, allocating, administering and making effective and efficient use of taxpayer’s money are topics, which will be covered during the visits at the Austrian Ministry of Finance, the Austrian Court of Audit or the Ministry of Science and Education as a budget executing entity. A second focus of the study trip is on digital transformation of public administration, which will be touched by visits of the City of Vienna, which has launched its “Digital Agenda”, or the newly established Ministry for Digital and Economic Affairs. An exciting and insightful week is awaiting the students, who will take over this blog and share their experiences.
