Objectifs du cours / Course objectives
The purpose of this course is to provide a venue for students to become exposed to and develop a knowledge and understanding of public management and leadership concepts essential to functioning successfully and responsibly in public organizations. The aims are, first, to enhance the students’ ability to formulate and implement coherent public policies by developing a keen awareness of some of the pitfalls and possibilities often associated with operating inside often large, complex bureaucratic structures. The development of operating frameworks and approaches for effective management and leadership will be emphasized, and comparisons will be drawn between the public, private, and non-profit sectors (as well as their interrelationships). Second, the course will stress the importance of leadership, and the rewards as well as challenges of operating within the public sector environment.
