About

The Erasmus Mundus Master of Science in Public Sector Innovation and eGovernance programme at KU Leuven is a unique and interdisciplinary programme combining the expertise of the fields of public administration, public management, information systems and eGovernance.

Overview

An international initial Erasmus Mundus Master of Science in Public Sector Innovation and eGovernance programme at KU Leuven of 120 ECTS, jointly organized by three universities:

  • KU Leuven (first semester). In Leuven, the student receives an introduction to public administration and public management, a general primer in the use of information systems in the public sector as well as an introduction into eGovernance practices.
  • University of Münster (second semester). In Münster, the student gains deeper insights into the use of information systems in relevant business processes, ICT projects, new approaches to service delivery as well as insights into the possibilities of ICT for governance.
  • Tallinn University of Technology (third semester). In Tallinn, the student gains in-depth knowledge of the potential benefits, risks, factors of failure/success of eGovernance, the role of eGovernance towards society and trends in public sector innovation.
  • During the fourth semester, students write their Master’s Thesis on a topic of their own choosing. Students can choose to do a research-oriented or practice-oriented internship within the framework of the Master's Thesis.
