 e-Government Online Certificate Program
Country: United States
Category: Training Institutions
Description: The e-Government online certificate program is being  offered by the University of Illinois  - Department of Public Administration - College of Urban Planning and Public Affairs.

e-Government, the knowledge and understanding of how to apply new information technologies in a governmental context, is an increasingly-important area of expertise for managers and executives at the federal, state and local levels. The implementation and strategic use of e-Government requires public administrators be trained in the management, policies, uses and implications of new technologies.

Local, state and federal governments have identified technology management, particularly in e-Government solutions, as an important management skill. Applicants for executive positions in many agencies must exhibit competency in technology management by remaining up-to-date on technological developments that they make effective use of technology to achieve results and that they can ensure access to and protect the security of technology systems. UIC’s e-Government online certificate program is taught by experienced faculty and practitioners and is designed to provide the e-Government training public administrators need to advance in the workplace.

The e-Government certificate program is ideal for public administrators at the local, state or federal level who:

Hold a management position and seek a better understanding of information technology applications in government
Hold an information technology position and seek a better understanding of management or policy as related to e-Government
Seek to build on their experience and knowledge
Wish to prepare for a career transition
Are interested in the strategic development, implementation and management of technology in the public sector
