Local Government

The MA – Local Government Management is a two-year, part-time programme that combines study of subjects central to public management broadly with subjects specific to Irish local government. It seeks to raise the level of analysis in Irish local government management and to equip participants with the knowledge and skills necessary for effective management. 

On completing the first year of the programme, students receive the interim award of a Postgraduate Diploma in Public Management. In the second year, students take three modules in local government management and complete, under expert supervision, a minor dissertation on an issue in local government of particular interest to them.
