The Education of Public Leaders: Dynamics and Effectiveness

Mihaela Victorita Carausan


Education is the most important asset of the people and the one to which the national and European governors should pay more attention. Education is the only one that could give people specific knowledge and could help them to deal with real, practical situations. In order to do this, we should open the public administration and law education system to values that are specific to other disciplines such as econometrics and sociology. The future leaders of the administrative system should know more about the impact of their decisions and to know and use the tools that will help them to do such analyses. A leader is more than a manager and administrator he/she needs specific skills and knowledge and the education system should build a curriculum that will provide him/her the necessary knowledge and tools to become one. In Romania, in the field of public administration, little attention has been focused on educating leaders for public bureaucracy. The hypothesis that led us to this study was that public bureaucracy leaders do not possess the qualities necessary to build the public administration of tomorrow. That it is why, in the future, we should focus more on leaders because they infuse changes in an organization and act as an inner part of the organization. Moreover, the strength of the administrative capacity in times of crisis consists in the qualification of the leading human resources. Leadership can change the nature and the direction of public administration. This is the reason why, we have to establish and re-evaluate the next steps in educating the future leaders.
