Public Administration

Introduction

Welcome to the department of Public Administration of Govt. College Women University, Faisalabad (GCWUF). We’re a dynamic association of public servants, academics and others interested in public administration.
Since our founding in 2015, MPA Department of GCWUF has led Public Administration research and has exported successful public sector expertise around the country. Our mission is to promote excellence in public service and we do that a number of ways through our prestigious publications, conferences, awards of excellence and knowledge networks.

Public Administration can be broadly described as the development, implementation and study of branches of government policy. Public Administration is linked to pursuing the public good by enhancing civil society and social justice. Though public administration has historically referred to as government management, it increasingly encompasses Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) that are not acting out of self-interest.

As a field, public administration can be compared to business administration, and the MPA viewed as similar to an MBA for those wishing to pursue governmental or non- profit careers. An MPA often entails substantial ethical and sociological aspects not usually found in business schools. There are derivative and related degrees that address public affairs, public policy, and the like. Differences often connote program emphases on policy analysis techniques or other topical focuses such as the study of international affairs as opposed to focuses on constitutional issues such as separation of powers, administrative law, problems of governance and power, and participatory democracy.
