Abstract

The article presents the state-of-the art of masters and executive programs in Public Administration and Public Management in Spain. Through an in-depth analysis of the programs currently offered in Spain, the authors present four different clusters based on whether the programs are offered by public or private institutions and on the targeted audience (juniors or practitioners). The authors come to the conclusion that Public Administration and Public Management programs in Spain have an extensive offer thanks to the numerous actors involved in normalizing this field. However, and despite the stabilization of the supply, the current economic crisis is severely affecting the public and private institutions offering these type of programs. In this respect, those organizations capable of maintaining the levels of supply, quality and withstand the effects of the economic crisis will have an advantageous position in the future. At the same time, they will be accountable to innovate in public management to help steering the country out from the crisis.
