Objective of this report is training need assessment at two and four year bachelor level for governance and public policy
Key research areas in the study are as follows:
Student Preparedness for Masters in Public Policy and Governance
We have selected following three governance and public policy linked disciplines:
Less than 5% of over all population in university age group is attending universities by the end of 2007-08.
Less than 2% of female population in university age group was attending universities by the end of 2003-04
Number of public and private sector academic institutions and student enrollment at university level is progressively rising which indicates rising demand for university education.
The growth data shows that this is a public sector led growth
more than 75% of the enrollment at university level in Pakistan and all regions except for Sind is currently in public sector universities.
Private sector accommodates 25% of the total student body
This fact indicates that Public sector has more capacity to accommodate students as compared to private sector
Private and public shares in student enrollment by area BACHELOR’S LEVEL.
Female student enrollment is low at all degree levels
as we move vertically in the ladder of education, male to female student ratio rises while it declines over time due to strong growth in female students
This calls our attention to the need for motivation and funding for higher education for females.
 BACHELOR’S LEVEL.Male to female ratio
None of the universities/colleges selected in the sample offer a full fledge program in Governance and Public Policy
Only 53% of the universities/colleges offer either of the public policy linked disciplines
80% of the universities/colleges offer Economics and 60 % offer Political Science and only 10% offer Public Administration at bachelor level.
“Why public administration in special and governance and public policy linked disciplines in general have been neglected by academic institutions?”
Supply side factors:
shortage of trained faculty especially at senior level due to poor incentive system in public sector
 BY ACADEMIC INSTITUTIONS Two years bachelor does not have semester system but effectively it is equivalent to 4 semesters.
 Offered mostly in affiliated colleges of public sector universities
THANK YOU BY ACADEMIC INSTITUTIONS
FOR YOUR PATIENCE
