The department of Public Administration of GC University, Faisalabad (GCUF) is a dynamic association of public servants, scholars and others interested in Public Administration.
Since its establishment in 2005, Public Administration Department of GCUF has led research in this dicipline and has imparted successful public sector expertise around the country. Our mission is to promote excellence in public service through prestigious publications, conferences, holding of seminars, awards of excellence and knowledge management networks. Public Administration can broadly be described as the development, implementation and study of branches of government policy. It is linked to pursuing public good by enhancing civil society and social justice. Though public administration has historically been referred to as government management, it increasingly encompasses Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs).
As a discipline, Public Administration can be compared to Business Administration and is viewed as similar for those wishing to pursue governmental, welfare, or private sector careers. A Public Administrator often entails substantial ethical and sociological aspects not usually found in business schools.
After getting a degree in Public administration one can pursue career in public policy, public administration and civil service.
Degree holders of public administration can apply for all the jobs that are advertised for business administrators. They have an edge upon business administrators as they have knowledge of both business and public administration and can pursue multiple opportunities in public as well as private enterprises.
