The Master of Public Administration is an essential professional development program for senior public servants across all levels of government looking to enhance their skills. Aimed at senior executives and senior managers in the public sector in all tiers of government, our program helps you to develop key leadership skills necessary for senior management in the public sector.

Operating through the Graduate School of Government (GSG), our course offers timely and relevant skills enhancement in public administration, providing the transferable skills necessary to equip you for work across a myriad of government agencies and ministries.

Our program was developed in conjunction with the NSW Government – the major course sponsor – and as such meets the government’s particular education and training requirements. The core units of study cover policy, public sector leadership, strategic administration, managing public expenditure, and a capstone unit.

Practical core units of study are matched with a targeted Leadership Development Assessment (LDA), allowing personal insight into your learning to help improve your professional performance and achieve your development goals.

Every student also has the opportunity to be paired with a mentor, usually a current or former senior public administrator, politician, member of the judiciary or leader from civil society or the private sector. Under their guidance you will receive one-on-one support and career advice that significantly enhances your theoretical knowledge of public administration in national, state, provincial and local government jurisdictions.
