Master of Public Administration

Program Objectives

The program aims to enable students to acquire and apply advanced knowledge of governance and administration to public sector management. The program prepares students to take managerial roles in the public domain. The program further aims to prepare students to relate theoretical issues with practical experiences and use such relationships to analyze critical issues and problems in public administration, as applied to developing countries. At the end of the program students will be equipped with competencies to proactively develop improved strategies in contemporary public management. The main clients for this program are students from developing countries who will work in public sector – but applicants from other parts of the world are also welcome and encouraged.
