Masters in Public Administration (International Development)

Course Description


The Master of Public Administration in International Development has been designed to support managers or potential managers of public organisations in developing countries. While the content of the MPA and the MPA in International Development overlap in several skill areas, they differ with respect to considerations of the environmental factors that impact on the work of public managers and the ways in which those factors shape the character of governance and the management and delivery of public policy.
Participants pursue a cluster of core modules which are commensurable with the international modernising civil services agenda and indicative skills development in developed and developing administration. The core modules provide common skills training for managers in policy and operational delivery. In the summer term, all course participants complete a policy report.


Core Modules
*Leading & Managing Change
*Conflict & Development
*Policy Analysis
*Managing Public Finances
*Theories & Policies of Development Governance
*Strategic Planning
Policy Report: During the Summer Term students start work on a Policy Report on a topic of their choice. The Report is due for submission at the end of the summer vacation.
