Using the results of management and organization theory, we provide an overview of the peculiarities of the operation of organizations and the specifics of law enforcement leadership. Our goal is to transfer and systematize the knowledge needed to perform managerial tasks, to establish a managerial approach and application skills.

In the master's program, in the educational process, we strive to deepen, in its scientific context, at a higher level of leadership, the leadership problems and solutions that students may have encountered during the undergraduate program. By expanding the state-of-the-art results and methods of management and organization theory, we expand students’ knowledge.

The department implements the teaching of management and organization theory subjects taught in doctoral training with a scientific need. Doctoral candidates will be introduced to modern trends in leadership theory that will allow in-depth scientific research work on the topic.
