Professional Certificate in Leading Smart Communities

Pepperdine University, West LA Campus

From online public participation platforms to blockchain, technology is fundamentally changing the government-resident relationship. The impact of technology is felt across all departments in municipal governments - from public safety to planning. The pace of change is such that even top graduate policy programs have not incorporated coursework on what is increasingly known as "govtech."

In this fast-paced, first-of-its-kind three day professional certificate seminar, you will learn from leaders in government technology how to better use the new technology platforms of today, and better understand the govtech "game changers" of the future.
