The Public Management Development Program (PMDP), the national government career executive service development program, is still accepting nominations to the Senior Executives Class (batch 2) until January 31, 2013.
The PMDP is a purposive, program-based and integrated professional development program for public managers in the third level of the bureaucracy. The program is seen as a clear direction towards professionalizing the bureaucracy by producing a corps of development-oriented, competent, dedicated, and honest government executives.
It is a leadership initiative under the Philippine Development Plan 2011-2016 and is overseen by a Steering Committee composed of the National Economic Development Authority, Civil Service Commission, Career Executive Service Board, Department of Budget and Management, and Department of Finance.
Harnessing its institutional experience and its mandate to carry out human resource development programs designed to instill development perspectives and advance management capability in the leadership of the key sectors of the government and the economy, the Development Academy of the Philippines (DAP) has been tasked to implement the PMDP.
Eminent persons - highly distinguished in the fields of leadership, development and public service - lead the roster of seasoned mentors who will facilitate learner-centric, highly-interactive, and practitioner-oriented training modules.
The Senior Executives Class will run for about 3 months in DAP Tagaytay. Accepted applicants will receive full government scholarships and successful graduates will be conferred a Master’s in Development Management degree.
