Public Administration is a multi-disciplinary, widely spread-out dynamic field of knowledge with a combination of facts and values. It develops a comprehensive understanding of "govern and governed". It promotes responsive "cross-culturalism" and "cross-nationalism". The nature of public administration, either heretic or modern, is always attuned to perfection and the fulfilment of the needs of citizens. This article suggests a need to develop a curriculum of education and training in Public Administration at tertiary level to create a multi-skilled environment for the future educators and practitioners.
