Advances in Public Administration

In April this year, the Nanyang Centre for Public Administration (NCPA) celebrated its 20th anniversary.  Dubbed affectionately the “Mayors’ Class” by the media, NCPA has trained over 12,000 senior Chinese government officials through its degree and short-term executive training programmes.  This is quite a remarkable achievement.  Going forward, NCPA plans to expand its programmes to Vietnam and possibly Myanmar.  It is always looking for lecturers.  So please get in touch with the Centre if you are interested.
