The 2020 program is deferred. Dates will be advised when made available.


The Executive Fellows Program (EFP) brings together world-recognised academics and high-calibre practitioners from the senior ranks in the public, not-for-profit and private sectors. It applies the latest thinking and academic rigour, while being firmly grounded in the reality of modern public service challenges.

Modelled on leading executive programs offered in the USA and UK, the content was tailored specifically to an Australian and New Zealand public sector context. Presenters and participants share their experiences and insights in a dynamic engagement that is central to the unique nature of this program.

EFP brings a global perspective and develops the capacity of senior executives to work across cultural boundaries and with increased international engagement. The program includes an international component in collaboration with the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy.

Participants will gain new insights into leading public sector performance and successful engagement in the Asia-Pacific region.

With an emphasis on enhancing strategic capabilities, the EFP focuses on the strategies and frameworks required to effectively lead in an increasingly complex operating environment.
