Postgraduate Diploma and Master of Management in Public and Development Sector Monitoring and Evaluation

Postgraduate Diploma and Master of Management in the Field of Public and Development Sector: Monitoring and Evaluation (PDM-M&E) and (MM-M&E)

The Programme

The Monitoring and Evaluation Postgraduate Diploma and Masters programme aims to strengthen capacity in management, monitoring and evaluation. It’s a response to government’s demand for personnel who can accurately measure outputs and outcomes of its interventions as a way of enhancing evidence-based decision-making. Scarcity of local personnel with these and other related skills translates into government sourcing these skills internationally, which is often expensive, untimely, and not customised. Wits School of Governance has taken the initiative to build the capacity of local personnel in South Africa, and Africa at large, so that we can lead by example and create our own developmental solutions.

Programme Aim

To build qualitative and quantitative skills for, and capacity in formulating, managing, monitoring, and evaluating development interventions.

Programme Delivery

The programme is delivered in three streams: block-release, part-time, and full-time. The block-release has three blocks with each block running over a period of 10 consecutive working days in every other month. The first block commences in April while the second and third blocks commence in June and August, respectively. The part-time class commences in February and class convenes twice a week after-hours for eight weeks for two courses before moving onto the next set. The full-time class commences in February and runs almost like the block-release but with shorter intervals between blocks.
