 The Master is closed. There will be no future editions.

The Master’s program focuses on the delivery of knowledge related to the proper design, implementation and management of e-Government solutions.
This requires bringing together the expertise in the areas of public administration (and of the information systems currently exploited to deliver services to citizens and companies) and the expertise in innovative solutions in the areas of information, knowledge, and process management, which are necessary to provide governmental services. The goal of the Master program is to provide advanced competences in these two areas and to concretely show how to combine them to deliver e-government solutions.

The master will include a substantial portion of time spent in collaboration with one of our industry partners.

This is a professional master, whose goal is to form attendees so that they have a profile which is highly attractive for companies. Students will spend part of their time on-the-job in companies, also in view of the possibility of being hired.

The program will cover the following topics:

  • Organizational Information Systems
  • Distributed systems and service interoperability
  • Information Privacy and Security
  • E-Government Concepts
  • Data Management for e-Government
  • Process Management for e-Government
  • Lifecycle management of e-Government applications

The official language of the Master is English.
Written and oral examinations, as well as the thesis are in English or Italian language on the student’s choice.

The program is divided in two parts: the first part is dedicated to teaching activities, and the second to hands-on experience and delivery of a final thesis. Candidates will have the opportunity to perform supervised activities on real-life E-government projects using state of the art platforms (such as SAP and IBM tools).
Students are obliged to attend at least 75% of the hours of lessons.

Each student is assigned a tutor upon acceptance in the program. The tutor is a faculty member and can provide advice and continuous help on any academic activity. All students are required to consult frequently with their tutors throughout the master’s period.

Information about the admission requirements may be found in the eligibility criteria page.

In order to obtain the Master qualification the student must have gained 60 credits. The final examination will consist of a public discussion on the Master dissertation. Such discussion will take place in front of a commission of at least four members of the University College members and will be worth 5 formative credits. The final grade, of a maximum of 110, will be the result of the average of all marks obtained in the courses, except the final examination, and an addition of 0 to 8 points, decided by the commission and based on the evaluation of the Master dissertation.

The Master lasts one year (see the "Academic Calendar" section in the year 2008/2009 ).
