Thorough knowledge of Public and Development Management is essential preparation for various professions in the public, business and voluntary sectors.
The public, or government, sector is the largest employer in every country and functions on national, regional, municipal and community level. It guards, regulates and develops the people and provides for them, or ensures that these things are done, in collaboration with the business and voluntary sectors.
Public and Development Management as a focal area, or supplementary study area, combines well with other subjects in the BCom programme, especially in the programme BCom (Management Sciences).
