Announcing the 2007 Executive Master's in e-Governance
Eight universities and institutes from Europe to Asia and North America are partnering to offer a global executive master's degree on e-Governance in 2007. The part-time, one-year degree program is offered by the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL). Students will literally travel the world exploring new applications and best practices in information and communications technologies (ICTs) and benefit from instruction by some of the world's most prominent experts.
The curriculum will cover both "e-government" (i.e., the use of ICTs to improve government operations and service delivery) and policy and governance issues associated with the growing dependence on information-communication technology. Participants will spend 12 weeks in residence in four modules of three weeks each in Switzerland, other parts of Europe, North America and Asia. Additionally, participants will complete a two week online preparatory module and a four week Innovation Project. Syracuse University's School of Information Studies and the Convergence Center will host two weeks of the North American module.
No other degree program offers this kind of rich, internationally diverse, real-world experience with the way information and communication technology is reshaping government and public policy, stated Dr. Milton Mueller, professor at the Syracuse University School of Information Studies. We are happy to be a part of it..
The program is designed for professionals with at least five years of experience who hold a Master's degree, and are seeking to enhance their professional growth in to executive management positions in networked industries, public administration, consulting firms and the third sector.
The 2nd edition of the Executive Master program in e-Governance will begin on September 4, 2006. The final deadline for admission into the program is May 31, 2006. For more information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org .
