ASU Course Code: PAF520

The course is available online to students enrolled in specific postgraduate programs in the School of Public Health and Community Medicine.

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.
