Launching New Academic Program - Doctor in Public Management


The School of Business is now offering the Doctor in Public Management (DPM). The DPM degree provides an opportunity to combine a doctoral thesis with disciplinary and methodologically based coursework. The research and thesis will offer a candidate the opportunity to research a real-world, work-based problem or issue where the objective is to make a novel contribution to practice. 

The DPM is designed as a minimum three year full- time equivalent program, structured as one-third coursework and two-thirds research.  The coursework component of the DPM will be undertaken through enrolment in courses already established within School of Business, UNSW Canberra. Coursework must be completed prior to the research. The DPM may be undertaken on either a part time or full time basis.

If you would like more information about the DPM degree, please contact Professor Deborah Blackman
