Studies in the civil service; information on the Department of General Internal Administration (specialization: non-technical service)

The non-technical administrative service degree program combines modern university studies with crisis-proof employment in the public sector.


In this course of studies leading to the degree "Diplom-Verwaltungswirt/in (FH)", the prospective inspectors study for the internal administration of the Free State and local governments.

The 21-month theoretical part of the course at the university in Hof is supplemented by 15 months of practical training at the training authority.

During the course of study, students acquire knowledge in the areas of law, economics, finance and administration.

The course of study qualifies students to take on qualified clerical work up to management tasks in the area of middle and senior management in the administration.
