Post Graduate Diploma in Public Administration and Management (DPAM)

Uganda Management Institute; Kampala , Mbarara,Gulu and Mbale Branches.



Public administration and management in the 21st century faces multiple challenges,inter alia, reducing confidence in public institutions, limited financial resources, limited human resource capacity and constant changes in socio-economic, political and environmental contexts. Addressing these challenges necessitates re-skilling of staff, developing, implementing and evaluating new service delivery models, enhancing the responsiveness of the public service to needs of its clients, and adopting new knowledge and paradigms in public administration and management.

In line with the UMI mission-“To excel in developing practical and sustainable administration, leadership and management capacity”, the programme is deemed necessary in order to strengthen the capacity of the public sector to respond effectively and efficiently to complex policy and management issues, think strategically in order to anticipate and plan for future challenges, and prepare managers to lead an increasingly diverse public workforce toward innovative solutions to public problems.
