Masters in Public Administration and Management (MPA)

UMI Branches


Public Administration as an independent subject of social science has recent origin. Traditionally Public Administration was considered as a part of political science. But in the modern age the nature of the state underwent change from a police state to social a service state. As a consequence, Public Administration, irrespective of the nature of the political system, has become the dominant factor of life. The modern political system is essentially ‘bureaucratic’ and characterized by the rule of officials. Hence, modern democracy has been described as ‘executive democracy’ or ‘bureaucratic democracy’. The administrative branch, described as civil service or bureaucracy, is the most significant component of governmental machinery of the state.
