The Public sector managers face an increasing pace of change, combined with pressures to deliver more with less, navigate a complex policy context and enhance performance while sustaining public service values. This programme is designed for senior managers in public and non-profit organisations to equip with the intellectual foundations for a career in leadership of public services.
The MA in Public Administration Advanced Entry route programme is designed for students that already hold relevant practical hands-on public service experience and a recognised Postgraduate Diploma (PgD) in public administration or an equivalent qualification.
Over the course of the programme, you will grow as a competent and reflective practitioner, both in your current role, and in preparation for more demanding roles in the future.
The Advanced Entry route programme consists of a Research Methods module and a Consultancy Project Report on a related topic of your choice, making it a popular option for individuals committed to developing their careers in senior management.
The programme begins with Induction and Research Methods webinars for approximately 4 weeks which enables you to finalise your proposal for your project.
The Consultancy Project Report module provides the opportunity for students to examine an area of particular interest within an appropriate organisational context. The module is designed to make a major contribution to professional and intellectual development, through enabling students to demonstrate their capacity for sustained independent thought, learning and critical reflection.
The purpose of this programme is to deliver a practical and realistic solution to a business-related strategic challenge, which in turn is supported by appropriate reference to theoretical and conceptual analysis. Students will evidence this by producing a Consultancy Project Report of 12,000 words.
The Consultancy Project Report is delivered and assessed by our UK based academic team using our virtual learning platform and direct support from your allocated supervisor.
The Advanced Entry route programme takes approximately 6 – 9 months to complete working with the support of your dedicated supervisor for the final Consultancy Project Report module.
We want students on our programme to have the support they need to make the most of their investment in their own future.
You will receive excellent support from our academic team, including your programme manager and your dedicated supervisor who will be with you every step of the way.
