The Master of Management in the field of Public and Development Management is a rigorous academic programme aimed at providing students with the advanced conceptual and analytical abilities they need to become effective public policy-makers and senior public administrators and development practitioners. [+]

Masters in Business Studies in Africa 2017. The Master of Management in the field of Public and Development Management is a rigorous academic programme aimed at providing students with the advanced conceptual and analytical abilities they need to become effective public policy-makers and senior public administrators and development practitioners. Candidates will require a foundational knowledge of public and development management. This includes a solid grounding in the theory and practice of governance, policy formation, and the management of large organisations, including public bureaucracies. While the Masters programme itself lasts a year, candidates are required to first complete the PDM course, which will provide them with the requisite foundation. Therefore, the Masters degree is effectively a two-year programme. Curriculum Masters students will first be required to complete four NQF level 9 courses. They will then be required to complete a dissertation of about 35000 – 40000 words on a contemporary public or development management subject. The course work and dissertation will each account for 90 of the 180 credits required to obtain the MM degree. The course work is aimed at providing students with the skills they need to conceive, plan, research, and write their dissertations. They also complete a reading elective designed to deepen their understanding of their chosen research topic. Students are required to develop a research proposal, which forms the basis of their dissertations, and to present it to a research committee for approval. The courses are: Quantitative research methods (20 credits) This course builds upon students’ prior knowledge of basic sampling methods and simple statistical inferences, including chi-square tests. This material is briefly revised, and the course then moves on to the formulation of research problems, purpose statements, and research hypotheses for use in quantitative research proposals; survey design, questionnaire construction, and simple data analysis; and hypothesis testing, including power analysis and regression analysis. Qualitative research methods (20 credits) This course teaches students to design and conduct qualitative research, and analyse qualitative data. Subjects include qualitative research paradigm assumptions, qualitative research designs/methods, various techniques and methods for gathering and analysing data, ethical issues, and evaluation. Research proposal design (10 credits) This course helps students to progress from a theoretical understanding of research models and methods to formulating an actual research proposal which will form the basis of their research report. The proposals are presented to and defended before a School proposal panel. Directed reading elective (40 credits) This course assists students to engage in depth with a subject relevant to public or development management. It comprises a series of seminars in which the lecturer and students work together to explore the literature on a given subject. Thesis The thesis is the pinnacle of the Masters programme. After formulating their proposals, students need to conduct original and in-depth research, analyse the results, and integrate research and analysis into a coherent thesis. Students are actively supported by thesis supervisors. All P&DM academic staff members supervise theses in their areas of specialisation. Admissions Applicants for the Masters programme first need to obtain the PDM with a pass mark of 65 per cent. Alternatively, they need to hold an honours degree in public management, obtained with a pass mark of at least 65 per cent. Applicants in the latter category may be required to supplement the standard Masters curriculum with additional courses. Course delivery Both the PDM and MM are offered as full-time, part-time and block study courses. Part-time students attend lectures in the evenings, and block release students attend lectures in two-week periods spaced throughout the year. Workloads Both the PDM and MM programmes are designed to encourage independent research and study. The workloads generally comprise 24 hours of contact time per course, with additional preparation and study hours taking total hours to the relevant NQF requirement. The total workload for the PDM is 1 200 notional hours. The total workload for the MM is 1 800 notional hours. Assessments Students are assessed by means of assignments and written examinations. Class and group assignments are also assessed. All examinations as well as the theses are externally examined. Applications Prospective students need to complete an application form which is available from the faculty office as well as online. They also need to submit records of previous academic performance, and a curriculum vitae. [-]

This degree will enable you to confidently coach managers and leaders towards reaching their full potential. This programme adheres to international best practice while also emphasising management coaching in a uniquely African context. Learning philosophy The learning philosophy of the MPhil in Management Coaching is based on: Growing human capital, developing talent in leaders and managers Having discovered your own authentic coaching style and having acquired professional coaching skills, you can support the growth of others through coaching. Also, as a manager, you can use a coaching management style to foster a stronger performance culture while offering support for continuous growth. Leading with confidence For executives and professional coaches, management coaching offers a way to develop leadership capabilities that will help you to face both current and potential challenges as you move up the ranks of your organisation. It also allows you to develop your potential into other areas of business or private practice. Using the coaching style that works for you This qualification offers you the opportunity to expand your knowledge and establish your credentials in management coaching. You will be exposed to various coaching models, approaches and frameworks. At the same time you will be encouraged to discover and experiment with the approaches and frameworks that work best for you in order to develop a personal and authentic style of coaching. Making a difference right from the start Presented in blocks over time, this modular programme is underpinned by solid theory (lectures, case studies, tutorials and assignments) as well as practical experience (giving and receiving coaching, supervision, and research and development). This allows participants to apply their newly acquired skills right from the start. Therefore, much of the value of this work-based programme lies in the practical application of coaching in the workplace during the course of the programme. This ensures exposure to real-world coaching while having access to information and support through various platforms. Also, the research and development part of the programme has to be carried out in your own work environment, which allows for the development of competencies based on real-world experience. This will stand you in good stead once you have graduated. Excelling in management coaching You will learn from distinguished and knowledgeable presenters, and capitalise on the thought leadership of local experts who were pioneers in the field of management coaching in this country. Today, most of these presenters play leading roles in the continued development of coaches worldwide. In addition, only a handful of people worldwide have doctoral degrees in coaching. A number of them will be facilitating and assessing on this MPhil in Management Coaching. During 2013, we have the pleasure of hosting Prof Dusan Stojnov from Serbia – a world expert in constructivism and construct psychology coaching. You will also benefit from comprehensive support throughout the programme. Operating in a multicultural environment The programme adheres to international best practice, while at the same time emphasising management coaching in a uniquely African context, shaped by diversity and varied cultural and educational backgrounds. It is particularly relevant to South African managers and leaders as it takes into account the diversity, traditions and multicultural environments of this country and the greater African continent. For you this also means international application with local specialisation. Enjoying international acknowledgement The USB’s MPhil in Management Coaching is internationally accredited by the AACSB and EQUIS. It is also the only Management Coaching master’s programme fully accredited by the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA). Building invaluable networks On your MPhil in Management Coaching journey, you will collaborate with people from a wide range of cultures, creeds and countries. You will walk the road of professional and personal development with them. This will broaden your views and add depth to your learning experience. During all of this, you will build valuable networks of business contacts and friendships that will last you a lifetime. Upon graduation, you become part of the powerful USB Alumni Association with its 15 000 members, offering access to continued learning, networking and more.

Apart from a two-day introduction, participants are required to attend four class contact blocks (of a week each) on campus during the first year and complete the final block and a research report during the second year. This will allow students to work full-time while they study. It will also enable working professionals from all over South Africa and beyond its borders to register for the programme. The programme consists of three phases: Phase 1 – class programme: Students have to attend four blocks of one week each on the USB campus during the first year. During this time, they will be exposed to various models to discover their own particular framework for coaching. Coaching practice, case studies and assignments form part of this phase of the programme. Phase 2 – professional assessment: Students’ coaching competence is assessed both in terms of their ability to convey their personal coaching approach and style, and in terms of authentically displaying coaching skills which resonate with their own model. This phase takes one week at the beginning of the second year. Phase 3 – research and development: Students have to complete a research assignment during the second year of enrolment. During this phase, a tutor will be assigned to each student based on the student’s field of interest. Students may schedule a number of face-to-face sessions with their tutors to discuss coaching issues that may arise. The cost of up to five of these sessions is included in the tuition fees. Throughout – triad practice, supervision and coaching: A significant part of the students’ journey is to coach and be coached. They must complete 40 hours of coaching and receive 20 hours of coaching (all of which is self-funded).
