Get ahead with a National N Diploma in Public Management

Are government policies and programmes your field of interest? Do you feel passionate about being the key driver towards finding solutions for some of society’s greatest problems? Then a National N Diploma in Public Management is suitable for you.

Public Management is one of those sectors that is concerned with the study of government and its processes, structures and functions and how society is managed. If you get involved in this field, you will learn about a range of topics from environmental to societal issues. As a public manager you will be responsible for leading, developing and implementing policies and legislation and managing city budgets with the aim of providing for the needs of the public. Public managers will therefore need to think critically and have strong analytical and communication skills.

The Diploma in Public Management will equip you with the necessary skills that will help you to function within a governmental organisation. You will explore subjects in management communication, public law, public finance and Municipal administration. The Public Management diploma is a definite choice for those looking to give back to the community and solve high level problems.
