The Public Sector Management (PSM) Program is a graduate certificate designed to enrich the leadership of early and mid-level managers in the Commonwealth, State, Territory and Local Government sectors across Australia.

PSM has been offered in Tasmania since 1992 and successful participants receive Graduate Certificate in Business (Public Sector Management) from the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) and are eligible for credit or advanced standing into further post graduate programs, including QUT’s Master of Business Administration (MBA) or Master of Business.

The PSM Program is coordinated and delivered in all capital cities by QUT and TTC actively promotes participation in the program in Tasmania.

The 15-month program has 4 units which include 14 workshop days and self-directed online learning to:

  • understand and manage the business of government
  • think systemically in an ambiguous and contestable world
  • be accountable and be held to account
  • become a reflective practitioner
  • manage relationships for customer and business outcomes
  • enable yourself and others for productivity and performance.

Do you want to advance your career and or become more efficient in your current role?
