The Australia and New Zealand School of Government (ANZSOG) encourages senior managers and high-performing leaders in the not-for-profit sector to enrol in the Executive Master of Public Administration (EMPA) and Executive Fellows Program (EFP).

The EMPA and EFP are designed to build and strengthen your leadership skills, improve your understanding of government and increase your confidence, supporting you to have a successful and impactful career in the not-for-profit sector.

ANZSOG offers scholarships* for not-for-profit applicants, working for organisations that are closely aligned with the public sector, to help reduce the barriers to participation and ensure the not-for-profit sector can develop its leaders to their full potential.
