The Specialist Certificate in Public Administration is designed for professionals working in or with government, through public, corporate or community organisations. The course offers an introduction and foundation to an inter-disciplinary and globally-focused group of subjects. The course draws on the expertise across the University of Melbourne to develop the skills and competencies of professionals who operate in increasingly complex governing environments where challenges cut across disciplinary, organisational, sectoral, jurisdictional and geographical boundaries.
The Specialist Certificate offers participants the opportunity to combine disciplinary expertise in political science, law, and business and economics with professional expertise in areas such as decision making, ethics, strategic management, negotiation and leadership. Participants will mix theory and practice to address the complex challenges of management in practice through an interactive learning experience, combining individual and team-based learning opportunities that allow them to explore a range of contemporary issues.
