Making our world a better place, by understanding and solving societal challenges, and managing the implementation of those solutions - that is what we train our students in.
 
The International Public Management (IPM) programme at The Hague University of Applied Sciences exists for 11 years now. With over 300 students from around 30 nationalities and staff hailing from several countries, IPM offers a truly diverse work environment. Together with Bestuurskunde, its Dutch-medium sister programme, IPM was newly accredited in 2017 and is currently designing a new, yet more practice-oriented curriculum to be implemented from 2020 onwards.
To support our team we are looking for a new colleague (0.8 FTE) to teach within our International Public Management bachelor’s programme starting in August 2019.

We share our knowledge and give the students the skills they need to be strong and confident. We do this by emphasising three core values: global citizenship, internationalisation and networking. This helps students be aware of the world around them.
As a University of Applied Sciences we stand in the middle of society and we also want to reflect this. In addition to our diversity amongst students, The Hague University of Applied Sciences values the same type of diversity among staff and among students. The Hague University of Applied Sciences seeks an inclusive campus with a diverse student and staff population in which equal opportunities stand out.
