Completion of the graduate study programme in European Administration allows you to deepen and systematize knowledge of management issues in the EU, as well as all dimensions of European integration. The programme  enables graduates to make accurate assessments of political, social and economic conditions of EU administration, to analyze and diagnose the relations between different dimensions of integration within the EU, as well as to develop policy strategies. The aim of the programme is to give students the ability to organize group work and manage work teams, to act as responsible members of the group, and to make independent business decisions.

The European Administration programme is a unique offer created to provide qualified personnel for the national (local and central) government, which deals with the implementation of EU law in Poland and EU administration. The programme also helps students to learn a second official EU language (German or French). Currently, no other Warsaw University unit conducts study programmes in English regarding European Administration.
