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.
