Public Finance, (UK), 29 May 1998. Start page: 18 No of pages: 3 Describes the United Kingdom MBA courses available to public sector employees, and the proportion receiving financial sponsorship. Discusses the merits of broad and specialist MBAs, suggesting that broad awareness is very important for accountants who need to learn how to manage change. Reports private sector interest in staff with public sector experience and qualifications as partnership develops between the two. Provides a counter-argument, that the public sector ethos deserves its own specialist MBA.
