Executive Post Graduate Programme in E-Governance (EPGP-EG) Admission Notice 2013

Ensuring efficient and effective governance is one of the key ingredients for socio-economic development. Nevertheless, economies of the world as well as organizations responsible for governance have more often than not struggled to ensure a smooth governance mechanism that is both efficient and effective. In particular, developing nations like ours have found it difficult to ensure governance reach to all sections and strata of society. However, the advent of technology has provided us another opportunity to overcome this shortcoming. Technology enabled governance has its own advantages and prime among them are its ability to ensure wide reach, transparency, and cost effective administration. Because of these qualities e-governance is considered to be the next big thing in governance with huge potential to contribute to the development of our nation.

The National e-governance Plan (NeGP) of Government of India aims for long-term growth of e-governance in the country. However, lack of skilled professionals in the e-governance domain limits successful execution of the NeGP. There is an acute scarcity of professionals who can execute and implement e-governance Projects. The central and state government bodies as well as public and private sector companies are in the need of trained manpower in e-governance area for faster and transparent execution of e-governance and related projects. In this context, there is a need for premier educational institutes like IIM Indore to address the lacuna and contribute to the development of e-governance in our country.

The Executive Post Graduate Programme in E-Governance (EPGP- EG) of IIM Indore intends to create a pool of skilled professionals in e-governance domain who can be instrumental in ensuring good governance in the country either through government initiatives or through private participations. EPGP-EG is an effort to bridge the growing gap between demand of skilled and relevant manpower and their availability. It is an intensive one-year residential programme designed to inculcate skills in management, governance, and IT enabled administration. Supported by the National Institute of Smart Government (NISG) and Department of Information Technology (DIT), Government of India, the programme is expected to build manpower that can take leadership role in private and government organizations in conceptualizing, designing, and implementing e-governance projects.

*A bachelor’s degree or its equivalent with minimum 50% marks during graduation and

*Full time work experience of at least two years.
Candidates with work experience in public management, e-governance projects, Government or corporate IT projects etc. will be given preference.

The course design therefore is a judicious mix of management, technical, and governance concepts complemented with a significant internship module. While Terms I and II cover basic and advanced level courses in management, technology, administration, and governance, Term III comprises of elective courses that participants can choose from a portfolio of courses.
