SKILLS TO BE DEVELOPED

The investment in the creation of the bachelor's degree in Municipal Management and the different specializations proposed are justified in the context of a process of change in which municipalities are faced not only with new social demands, but also with problems of increasing complexity, to which they have difficulty responding adequately. This difficulty in terms of response lies less in the problems and more in the endogenous characteristics of municipal administration, traditionally marked by characteristics of centralization, sectoral organization and bureaucratic management processes that disarm it, not allowing it to respond effectively to the new missions.

 

The ongoing process of decentralization of skills evidences the set of abilities that the current and future municipal managers and/or holders of public office in local governments must get to carry out the functions comprehending the ethical and deontological principles of public offices: public service; legality; justice, exemption and impartiality; equality; proportionality; collaboration and good faith; information and quality; loyalty and cooperation; transparency and integrity; 
competency and responsibility.
