The Master of Public Administration (MPA) degree is a highly sought after programme providing postgraduate training for employees in the public sector, quasi-autonomous organisations and non-government organisation (NGO) sectors.

The MPA programme offers students a wealth of relevant knowledge and skills required in a rapidly developing African continent.

The MPA programme is varied in its content and style and is academically challenging and stimulating as an NQF level 9 qualification.



This programme allows for articulation to the Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) degree offered by MANCOSA or other cognate NQF level 10 doctoral degrees, offered both locally and internationally.
