Thursday, December 10, 2020
Online programmes are becoming more and more popular every day, so there are plenty of options for you to study.
Online programmes have evolved: if in earlier days there were a few, now they are many. From bachelor's to online master's degrees, the range of options is wide, and it is a great choice for students who want to enjoy the benefits that come with online learning.
One example of the importance online programmes have been acquiring in the last few years is the amount of online master's degrees available in different universities all around the world. In South Africa there are several institutions that have adapted programmes, like master's degrees, to become online master's degrees. For instance, the Master of Public Management and Governance offered by the University of Johannesburg used to be only available for in-person learning, but recently it has become a part of their online master's degrees offer.
This degree prepares its students for the hard task of developing and implementing policies in different environments, mainly in the public sector. So graduates from this programme (and other online programmes related to this one) will be able to occupy executive positions within the public sector (and, of course, the private sector as well) with the solid knowledge of how to manage institutions and implement policies, which will make them great leaders within their workplace.
During the course of this programme students acquire knowledge from different fields (fields that have their own online programmes), which makes it an interdisciplinary degree: sociology, law, economics, ethics, statistics, etcetera, are part of the academic background graduates have, and all of them combined provide them with the knowledge and skills necessary to perform managing tasks in an efficient and effective way.
As it was established before, the Master of Public Management and Governance
programme is offered by the University of Johannesburg.
It consists of eight compulsory modules and four minor dissertation modules, and it can be pursued completely through online learning. Without any face-to-face sessions, you will be able to study and work, learn at your own pace, stop commuting, and enjoy all the benefits that come along with online learning.
