About

The Public Administration (Online) programme from University of York is an internationally recognised qualification acting as the public service equivalent of an MBA. Public service 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. 

Overview

Designed for professionals in public and non-profit organisations and providing strong and comprehensive support, this online Masters programme will equip you to meet these challenges.

You will study three aspects of public administration:

  • The policy process, within which public services are developed.
  • The organisational and human context through which public services are delivered.
  • The wider social, economic and political environment that shapes public service demands and constraints.

You will learn how to analyse complex public management problems, lead change effectively, and develop your ability to manage through networks and partnerships. You will be able to shape and deliver the public services of the future, and move into more strategic roles in a wide range of organisations.

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 design of the Public Administration (Online) programme from University of York and the support provided mean that you will be able to balance the requirements of your studies with your work and other responsibilities.
