March 26, 2014

We are now accepting applications from prospective students for the Master in Public Management (MPM) Program and PhD in Leadership Studies, Major in Public Management until May 10, 2014.

MPM Program

The School's 39-unit masteral degree program runs for a minimum of 18 months depending on the courses being taken by a student. The MPM curriculum is designed to strengthen and develop the students' leadership and managerial competencies in the rigors of public service delivery anchored on the use of effective management and governance principles and methodologies.

The program is offered in a Standard Program where a multi-disciplinary combination of elective courses can be taken. Another option is to take a cluster of elective courses along Specialized Tracks such as Health Governance, Local Governance, Climate Change and Environmental Governance, among others.

Classes will start on June 21, 2014.

PhD Program

The PhD LS-PM is a 72-unit program which aims to develop knowledge-building practitioners who seek to build knowledge, theory, and practice on leadership and public management in the Asian and Philippine contexts. It also seeks to look at theory, practice, and research, in terms of the person of the leader and the transformation of organization systems, institutions, or communities.  The program also recognizes the need to understand the national, regional, and global contexts of organizations.
