In this course we will explore public management in theory and practice. A discussion of public management involves the environment, individuals, politics, and organizations that implement public policy. This course emphasizes both substantive (theory) and skill (practice) development. The substance is the vast literature subsumed under the rubric of public management and organizational theory. The skills are those associated with the practice of understanding and diagnosing public management as well as further developing research and analytical skills. This course will encourage students to bring their experiences to the course thereby extending, challenging, and offering new perspectives resulting in a more in-depth understanding of public management.
This course is being taught by Arizona State University (ASU), and will be offered to UNSW students. The course will be offered solely online, and utilise the internationally renowned online educational systems of ASU.
Prerequisite: Students who are not enrolled in a postgraduate program in the School of Public Health and Community Medicine will need to provide approval from their program authority and the approval of the course convenor to firstname.lastname@example.org
