The job of running an organization or government program is not an easy one, and it requires extraordinary leadership. Today's challenging environment demands leaders who are willing to: grow a mindset that can make sense of a complex environment; diagnose and change their behavior; inspire those they lead; work and learn collaboratively; overcome barriers to institutional change; act with integrity; facilitate reflective and productive dialogue, think strategically, and direct with pristine skill and fierce resolve.
The AU School of Public Affairs' executive learning programs allow you to learn to be an authentic leader who works collaboratively, creates change, acts with integrity, and inspires others to act. At SPA, you will study with leading scholar-practitioners in the public sector who challenge you to put public administration principles into real-world practice. Our programs include working with a cohort of peers in a mutual learning environment and share information, make connections, and form lifetime connections.
