Public Administration and the MBA Crossover: what is the case for more socialisation?
This article sets Masters in Public Administration in the complex context that such executive education is delivered today. It discusses sector blurring, skills capacity building needed as the economy and organisations move away from the old ‘industrial mindset’ and the new mission of social enterprise shared with MBAs. It demonstrates that executive education today needs to develop an ‘open mindset’ and related skills of creativity, leadership and innovation. The article makes the case for greater strategic socialisation between MPAs and Masters in Business Administration which it argues can benefit students from the commercial sector, public service organisations and everything in between.
