About the School of Public Management

 

The School of Public Management and Planning prepares graduates for leading roles in public and civic organisations that are engaged with a rapidly changing and complex world. Graduates are equipped with the knowledge, competencies and values required to build sustainable African societies. They will be able to tackle Africa?s greatest challenges: the suffering caused by poverty, undemocratic and illiberal governance, deformed economic development, social exclusion, community disempowerment, ineffective development planning, and unsustainable use of limited resources. Emphasis is placed on the ability of graduates to craft and facilitate an open civic public realm wherein dialogue and contestation can thrive within a culture of tolerance, modesty, solidarity and compassion. To this end, the School?s teaching, research, consulting and community work programmes are designed to foster professional excellence, social entrepreneurship, reflexive leadership, effective management, and the competencies needed to work within complex, multi-disciplinary, networked and diverse operating environments.

The School's dedicated team of academics keeps abreast of the latest global, regional and domestic research developments, gaining first-hand experience in international best practices in knowledge generation and also producing knowledge resources of a consistently high quality. Knowledge transfer is undertaken through undergraduate, postgraduate and short courses that examine the developmental and managment challenges facing South Africa. Through networking the School has acquired reputable academic connections abroad and locally, through links with some of the world's leading Schools of Public Affairs in the United States, Europe and African and a network of South African tertiary institutions that are developing innovative, accessible and appropriate solutions for our region. Knowledge application takes place through the activities of Consultus, a commercial company owned by the University and the School and used as a vehicle for professional knowledge applications and capacity building. In this way the School is involved in hands-on policy development, management consulting, research, community services and project evaluation. This offers students real-time insight into the latest trends and developments in this rapidly changing arena. An active student association called Development Action offers a link between theory and practice, enabling students to gain valuable practical knowledge and experience through research field trips, internships and tours.
