Estonia’s e-government and the country’s other innovative e-solutions have grown into one of Europe’s success stories of the last decade. Tallinn Tech has taken a leap into the future of e-Governance education. Largely focusing on IT solutions at government level, its interoperability between different faculties in the University is giving fundamental background also in other aspects (law, public management and economics) of government. The program is especially important due to the reason that it is unique in Estonia and in Europe and the demand for the specialist with broad knowledge on e-governance is increasing tremendously.
The Master’s programme in e-Governance Technologies and Services is giving students broad knowledge about the makings of a modern state – the transition into e-governance, its management and development. Studies include a wider overview of administrative and legal aspects of e-governance.
The curriculum will help to prepare managers and specialists responsible for the development of e-Governance, who are able to comprehend the business processes and the management of public administration; and are familiar with the information systems and software development.
Giving student’s a broad knowledge about the transition into e-governance, its management and development, helps graduates to work as a public sector high level officials whilst leading eGov projects by having also a wider overview of administrative and legal aspects of e-governance.
Master’s degree holders have the opportunity to continue their studies in the PhD programme.
Arvo Ott, Executive Director of the e-Governance Academy:
“e-Governance is not only technology but also innovation, policy, legal and fiscal frameworks, management and economy. The curriculum of the programme brings together science, practices and knowledge in these fields and trains very internationally needed specialists of the e-Governance.”
The e-Governance Academy
- is a non-governmental organization, which shares Estonia's expertise and experience on state level and has trained and consulted governmental officials in more than 40 countries around the world, including countries like China, India, Japan, Canada, Cuba, Georgia, United Kingdom and many more.

Under the patronage of SIT – the Italian Society of Telemedicine - the Rome Business School’s Master’s Degree Course in e-Health Management has been designed to supply training on organizational processes and technologies aimed at the proper introduction and management of ICT solutions and Telemedicine in Health Systems.
E-Health is the combined use of information technology and electronic communication, especially the internet, in the health sector, for clinical, educational and administrative purposes; both on-site and at distance (in which case it is called Telemedicine). E-Health is not only a technical development, but also represents a way of thinking, a commitment, an organizational approach to improve health care locally or regionally by using the new opportunities presented by Information and Communication Technology.
By means of e-Health and Telemedicine, a Healthcare Institution or Ministry can achieve:
• More efficiency in health care: reducing costs by networking data and knowledge, avoiding duplication in diagnostic or therapeutic interventions, treating patients directly at home.
• A higher quality of care: by networking the Health professionals’ knowledge, enabling comparisons, and involving the patients and care givers.
• The empowerment of patients.
• The education of both physicians and patients about the management of pathologies
• More equity, for example by networking smaller hospitals with larger institutions and making virtual visits to remote areas.
In this scenario, it is crucial for a Manager to understand the potentiality, seize the opportunities, push and, above all, lead the e-Health and Telemedicine revolution in health care.

e-Government is a growing area. As our world becomes increasingly connected through ICT, governments need skilled professionals who understand how to manage the impact of these ever-evolving technologies.
At Victoria's School of Government, you'll discover innovative new uses for ICT—building new ways for communities to engage with government and use public services.
Victoria's Master of e-Government is the only course of its kind in the Asia-Pacific region.
Focusing on the management rather than the technical aspects of e-Government, your courses are designed by experts in government and ICT and taught by leading academics in this new field.
Be part of a school that attracts not only local professionals but a talented group of international students—many highly experienced employees of government organisations in their own countries. Take advantage of the diverse experience in public policy and public management these students take to the classroom—providing valuable insights and bringing the comparative perspective alive.
The MEGov will give you the skills and knowledge to manage transformational government ICT projects, using real-life examples from New Zealand and overseas. Your studies will include:
Courses are delivered in a Block, Intensive or Weekly format. Whatever format your course is delivered, you need to attend all of the classes to pass and to get the most out of your study.
Most MEGov courses are delivered on-campus in a block format, which means that you'll need to attend classes on three full days each semester. These classes are separated by about six weeks.
Some of your core classes are delivered in a weekly format, with classes taking place in the evening during the standard university trimesters.
Depending on the courses you take, you may have a class that's delivered in an intensive format. Intensive courses are structured as one-off blocks of four days, or two blocks of two days separated by six weeks.
If you are studying full-time you can expect a workload of 40–45 hours a week for much of the year. Part-time students doing two courses per trimester will need to do around 20–23 hours of work a week. Make sure you take this into account if you are working full-time.
You can estimate your workload by adding up the number of points you'll be doing. One point is roughly equal to 10–12 hours work.
The MEGov can be completed in two years part-time, or one year of full-time study.
Postgraduate study at Victoria will help you build valuable relationships and networks with peers, university staff and future colleagues.
You’ll get an orientation to introduce you to the people you’ll work with, a working space with desk, computer and storage, and use of a common room or kitchen when you want to take a break or mingle.
You'll also have opportunities to attend events, workshops, social functions and seminars such as the Student Learning Postgraduate Research skills sessions.
The Postgraduate Student's Association can give you information and provides a voice for you on campus.
You'll be well-placed to take part in the emerging area of e-government, leading and managing ICT projects at government departments or non-governmental organisations (NGOs).
And while you'll develop skills that will uniquely prepare you for e-government projects, you'll also have capabilities and knowledge you can use in private industry.
