The story

The National University of Political Studies and Public Administration (SNSPA), established in 1991 as a school of governance and training of professionals for essential social areas, is a landmark in the Romanian academic setting.

Known both nationally and internationally, SNSPA is a state institution of higher education, scientific research and professional academic training offering undergraduate degrees, master’s degrees and doctoral studies. SNSPA trains and develops professional competencies in Political Sciences, Sociology, Administrative Studies, International Relations, Diplomacy, European Studies, Communication Sciences, Psychology, Management, Human Resources, thus contributing to change at national and international level, a change based on democratic values and principles.

SNSPA has proved to be a successful project, being one of the most popular institutions with high school graduates or professionals in different domains who wish to study further.

SNSPA stands out because of its educational commitment with the purpose of finding answers to contemporary issues, at national as well as at regional and global levels. SNSPA offers numerous study programmes, at all levels and types of academic education, accredited or licensed, the entire structure of the study programmes being compatible with the Bologna Process.

In response to a social necessity that was felt in Romania after 1989, SNSPA was established as a post-graduate programme, following the model of the schools of governance in France, Belgium, Great Britain and USA. Its setting up was determined by the situation Romania was confronted with in the early 90s in terms of the initial/in-service training of specialists in administrative and political sciences, by the need to create expertise in these areas, to train professionals for the public area, while the country was undergoing a restructuring process and acceding to/ under a project of reforming and access to the European and Euro-Atlantic structures.

In its over two decades of existence, SNSPA has trained professionals who due to their level of knowledge contribute to the drawing up and management of public policies in state institutions, to the development of the country’s international affairs, to the organisation and management of business in private companies, to the improvement of communication and to the process of nation or company branding.
