The MA – Local Government Management is a two-year, part-time programme that explores the key issues in local government. For this academic year, it is delivered online.
The programme 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 in the local government field. 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.
