TAPMI is the only B-School to start the one of its kind course in India. The programme is being offered by TAPMI in collaboration with National Institute for Smart Government [NISG], Hyderabad with support from the Department of Information Technology Ministry of Communications & IT, and Government of India. TAPMI is the first management institute in the country to be selected to conduct a post graduate e-governance programme for executives in collaboration with NISG.
"The eGPX Programme has been designed to produce e-Governance professionals who will fill the capacity gap in the e-Governance space, both in the government and private sectors. Keeping with its tradition of academic excellence, TAPMI aims to support the government in its ambitious National e-Governance Plan by enlarging the pool of professionals in the e-governance domain by helping them acquire adequate skills to analyze, design and implement an e-Government application." said Dr. Saji Gopinath, Director of TAPMI.
The National e-Governance Plan has been initiated by the Government of India to transform Government departments and agencies from department-centric mode of working to a citizen-centric way of working has been one of the prime reasons for floating such a course.
"eGPX intends to bring together Government officers who would have a clear idea of the processes that need ICT-enabled change and professionals from the private sector including IT, who would help implement this change. Learning about the possibilities of using ICT for citizen-centric, transparent governance and working together to make it happen is the aim of the program," said Dr. Jaba M Gupta, Chairperson eGPX. The admissions for the 2010-11 batch of eGPX will close on July 15, 2010.
eGPX will enable participants to understand an e-Government system from the point of view of the various stakeholders including the citizens, businesses and Government. State-of-the-art classroom technology and pedagogy is used by TAPMI to simulate real-life situations and prepare the participants to understand the enormity of challenges involved in e-Governance transformation projects. The course is divided into three Terms, and each term effectively building up in-depth knowledge and practical skills. In order to give ample exposure to e-Governance projects, the course also includes a study tour and an 18-month internship period.
