    Management and Administration - PhD

    Introduction

     With the world’s increasingly complex problems and resource limitations, there is dire need for scholars who are qualified both to train the next generation of professionals for the public service and to expand society’s store of knowledge about management and administration. Society therefore needs critical minds trained at advanced level with skills and competencies in creating new knowledge and in analysing the environment in which management and administration take place. The PhD in Management and Administration is designed to train such teachers and researchers as well as practitioners with broad knowledge, competencies and skills in management and administration. The programme is interdisciplinary in its focus especially in the teaching/coursework component.
