Please be advised that effective April 2009, the Public Management Institute was suspended. Despite all efforts, the unprecedented fiscal challenges and resulting budget deficits have made it impossible to continue the program until further notice.
For many years, the Public Management Institute (PMI) has served as an important vehicle for bringing exceptional individuals with the capacity for leadership to careers in New York State government. Through carefully crafted job assignments, coupled with relevant training experiences, the PMI prepares participants with master's degrees in public administration or a related field for management positions of increasing responsibility within State agencies.
During the two-year program, interns serve in a professional position within a State agency. In addition to on-the-job learning, interns experience specialized training, rotational assignments, and mentoring for professional guidance and advice. These program components have been designed to provide the interns with the tools for building a management career in New York State government. Unlike typical short-term internships, the PMI is a full-time, paid traineeship.
The PMI offers a unique and challenging career opportunity with excellent compensation and benefits. Most importantly, the Institute offers an opportunity to aspire to a leadership position in New York State government.
The goals of the Public Management Institute are to:
- attract individuals with appropriate graduate level management training who have exceptional skills and abilities to New York State service; and
- develop these individuals as generalist managers who are competent and knowledgeable about key aspects of the operation of New York State government.
The Institute serves as an important training resource for developing effective, innovative senior managers of the future.
