The complexity and demands posed by an increasingly globalised world require enterprising and responsive decision-makers who have a deep understanding of how policies are formulated. These leaders will need the tools to adopt a multi-disciplinary approach to implement policy strategies.
The Master in Public Management (MPM) programme is designed to enhance the skills of senior managers working in the public, non-profit, and private sectors in the area of good governance. It is targeted at accomplished officials whose leadership role is acknowledged within their own organisations and who possess the potential to advance to more senior positions.
MPM graduates acquire the advanced managerial and leadership skills needed to undertake diverse responsibilities. The MPM candidate is, therefore, not selected on present accomplishments alone but also on future potential. Students will gain invaluable practical experience during their attachment to Singapore ministries and agencies. Singaporean students may also be attached to overseas organisations with outstanding public policy programmes that pertain to their area of study. This practical experience provides MPM candidates with the opportunity to bridge theory with practice during their course of study.
In addition, the programme employs problem-based learning methods such as case studies, which are refreshing learning experiences that transcend the mere assimilation of facts and allow students an opportunity to learn by doing.
Our students come from a wide variety of backgrounds and move on to leadership positions around the world. You are invited to share their experiences here.
