Australia and New Zealand School of Government (ANZSOG)

The Australia and New Zealand School of Government (ANZSOG) provides world-class postgraduate education to senior executives and emerging leaders in the public sector. The Public Sector Commission is pleased to partner with ANZSOG to deliver three distinct programs:

Executive Fellows Program (EFP)

Applications for the 2016 intake are now closed.​

The EFP is an intensive three week residential program, bringing together eighty high-level senior executives, leading academics and experienced practitioners from Australia, New Zealand and overseas. The program has been designed to enhance core relationship, leadership and management skills needed to meet the challenges of leading in the 21st century.

The curriculum fosters two way communication, engaging participants and facilitators in case study discussions, group work and peer clinics. This format provides an invaluable opportunity to gain fresh strategic insights and advice from domestic and international jurisdictions.

Eligibility: Tier 1 or Tier 2

Enquiries may be directed to the program coordinators at leadership@psc.wa.gov.au or on (08) 6552 8894.

Executive Master of Public Administration (EMPA)

Applications for the 2018 intake are now closed.

The Executive Master of Public Administration (EMPA) Program is a two year post graduate qualification designed to prepare emerging leaders in the public sector for the increasingly complex and challenging world they will confront.

EMPA is specifically designed for local public sector leaders, addressing real issues and ‘live’ government challenges. Developed in conjunction with ANZSOG’s government and university partners, the best international academics and public sector practitioners combine to provide a first-class curriculum.

Not unlike an MBA specifically tailored for government careers, the aim is to produce world-class public sector leaders with strong skills in everything from financial management to laws and regulations, data analysis and intellectually sound policy-making.

The course is a blend of theory and practice, of discussion and case studies, of academic rigour and real world relevance that allows students to access the best thinking and learning as they share their individual workplace challenges.

Eligibility: PSGOGA Level 8 (or equivalent) and above
Dates: Two years part time
Venue: Various schools across Australia and New Zealand

Enquiries may be directed to the Public Sector Leadership team at leadership@psc.wa.gov.au or on (08) 6552 8569.
