Continuous improvement and reform are recurring themes for governments throughout the world. This requires the knowledge and skills to understand, manage and adapt to change in fields as diverse as governance, service delivery, management and public enterprise. Global moves towards competitive, flexible and managerial models of public administration force political leaders and managers to face challenges such as sophisticated regulation of privatised utilities, managing contracted services and active engagement with citizens. These challenges are likely to continue for the foreseeable future.

The Public policy discipline will provide managers with the analytical and managerial skills to deal effectively with continued pressure for reduced budgets, more rigorous accountability and improved services.
