The Graduate Certificate in Public Administration (Advanced) is designed for professionals working in and with government, corporate, and public sector organisations. It provides an introduction to global issues in public administration. The course draws on expertise across the University of Melbourne to develop the skills and competencies of professionals who operate in increasingly complex governing environments where challenges cut across disciplinary, organisational, sectoral, jurisdictional and geographical boundaries.

The course offers participants the opportunity to combine disciplinary expertise in political science, law, and business and economics with professional expertise in areas such as decision making, ethics, strategic management, leadership and negotiation. Participants will mix theory and practice to address the complex challenges of management in practice through an interactive learning experience, combining individual and team-based learning opportunities that allow them to explore a range of contemporary issues.
