Research Focus Areas

The developments that have taken place in the SPMA over recent years have been made possible by a remarkable team of experts that comprise the SPMA’s staff complement. Students are privileged to have lecturers and supervisors who are leading experts in their respective fields. Staff members of the SPMA take their research findings beyond the pages of international journals and fulfil advisory roles where they share their knowledge and research with government. They also travel extensively to attend and participate in conferences nationally and internationally, and postgraduate students are encouraged to do the same.
