Fundamental public administration and management sciences used at the faculties of public and municipal administration

2012. No. 3. P. 75–87 [issue contents]

An organization theory (OT) and a theory of organizational behavior (TOB) along with the general management are very important for training managers. These subjects are compulsory and lectures are delivered at all management faculties, but little attention is paid to them for teaching specialists in public administration. The article raises and discusses the following issues:

– are fundamental sciences really necessary for training administrators, as public administration departments have an obvious practical orientation?

– are principles and technologies used for businesses good for public service bodies that have their own peculiarities diff erent from those of business organizations?

The authors express their point of view on the problems: the importance of OT for both students of management faculties and students of public and municipal administration is connected with its main task to reveal the organizational essence, regularities of functioning and mechanisms of development of all organizations regardless of their type. It is not until then, that it is possible to identify specifi c problems of any type of organizations. TOB is also very important for students of these faculties, as the ability to analyze and predict behavior of an employee and groups of employees in organizations is most significant for effective work of an administrative worker in any organization.
