About the programme
Master's programme in Open eGovernment provides you with planning, management and technical skills necessary for leading and transforming public organisations to be open, inclusive, innovative, flexible and effective using Information and Communication Technology (ICT).
The programme provides in-depth knowledge, including theories and practices, in areas such as e-service design and innovation, e-democracy, e-governance, requirement engineering, business process management and improvement, security and privacy in e-Government, ICT architecture, ICT system integration as well as project and change management. The programme also has a specific focus on business intelligence, decision support systems, and open and big data management for e-Government.
The master programme promotes a new role needed in public organisations, an e-Government architect, a role that has the knowledge and skills necessary to drive ICT enabled changes in the public sector. An e-Government architect combines knowledge about democratic processes, citizen service and public administration with skills in designing effective ICT systems and e-services for e-Government.
The master programme is inspired by the Swedish democratic model as well as models in the area of e-Government developed in Europe and the rest of the world.
