Professional Certificate Program Off to a Flying Start
Mr. Elvin Mala, is the first of 48 scholarship recipients of the 2015 TLP-SP Professional Certificate Program. He began his semester-long program in the International Certificate Program in Technology at the Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT) in Chicago in January, 2015.
Mr. Mala is both an Information Technology expert at the Treasury Department of the Ministry of Finance of Kosovo and owner and founder of an IT consulting company. At IIT, he has undertaken the Certified Information System Audit Program (CISA), which will make him one of the first Information System Auditors in Kosovo. He believes that TLP-SP support in this program will assist him to provide leadership and guidance to Kosovo institutions on implementing and maintaining best practices and good standards of IT control and lifecycle management.
Throughout 2015, another 47 Professional Certificate Program award recipients will travel to the US to complete professional certificate programs in diverse areas, including Rule of Law, Public Administration, Agriculture, Management, Finance / Accounting, Education and Engineering / Information Technology.
The next call for applications for the TLP-SP Professional Certificate Program will be in September, 2015, when 40 Professional Certificate Program scholarships will be available to the most deserving candidates.
TLP-SP will be awarding 160 Professional Certificate scholarships and 185 Master’s Degree scholarships within five years.
