Master of Arts in Public Administration

The Master of Public Administration Degree is a postgraduate qualification granted to students who complete a course of study in the knowledge and competencies needed for careers in public service administration. The MPA prepares individuals to serve as managers in the executive arm of the government, in local authorities and other public bodies or organisations as well as non-governmental organisations and non-profit sectors.


As a general rule, applicants for Masters Programmes must hold a good first Degree in the relevant field of their desired studies or acceptable professional qualifications such as ACCA, CIMA, ICAEW, ACA, inter alia. However, a tentative separate system of entry requirements may be devised, in the discretion of the Senate, should an exceptionally deserving case of application arise.
