Are you looking for more from your career or ways to take it to the next level? Do you want to know how to be innovative in the public sector?

The Public Sector Management Program (PSMP) equips experienced and aspiring leaders from across the public sector with the knowledge and skills to successfully manage the business of government and position themselves for future leadership opportunities.

Delivered by the Queensland University of Technology (QUT), graduates of the PSMP will receive a Graduate Certificate in Business (Public Sector Management) and be eligible for credit or advanced standing into further post graduate programs, including QUT’s Master of Business Administration (MBA) or Master of Business.

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.

Hear from academic staff and past students on their PSMP experience.


Each year, the Public Service Commission partners with QUT to offer one-for-one scholarships for Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander employees to undertake the highly regarded PSMP as part of the Queensland Government’s commitment to building Queensland’s leaders of tomorrow, today.

Please note that the 2019 scholarship process has now closed.
