Department of Public Sector
"Scientifically-based and proven specialist competence in health care, public administration, and cultural institutions; this has distinguished us for the last 20 years."
Prof. Andreas Bergmann PhD, Head of Department Public Sector
The Department of Public Sector consists of four organizational units with their own areas of specialization in consulting, research, degree, and continuing education programs. At the Institute of Public Management, these are public finance management, public governance, and public performance management. The Winterthur Institute of Health Economics focuses on health care management, health economics, and health technology assessments. Cultural administration, fund raising, and sponsoring are core competences at the Center for Arts Management, and the Center for Economic Policy investigates the economics of the public sector. Our clients include public administrations, non-profit organizations, hospitals, insurance companies, medical-technological and pharmaceutical corporations, professional associations, and cultural institutions. In collaboration with them, we develop new products and services, and in so doing transfer the latest scientific findings to the workplace.
