e-Learning at UNITAR's Public Finance and Trade Programme


Our online courses are intended for a global audience of finance and trade officials. Each online course is conducted by UNITAR over the internet and lasts up to six-weeks.

High quality training content is provided for each course, and forms the basis for study, discussions, group work and individual assessments.

The learning environment comprises of finance and trade sector officials from all over the world (developing, emerging and industrialized nations) who have a unique opportunity to study, share, and engage in practical discussions using our discussion board facility.

Each course is moderated by an international expert with an in-depth understanding of current challenges and issues. Each course also aims to deepen the skills and understanding of participants as well as allow them an opportunity to network and dialogue with other officials and co-participants so as to share country experiences and good practice in public finance and trade management issues.

Each e-Learning course requires 40 to 50 hours of study time spread over a six-week period and a certificate is awarded by UNITAR to successful course participants.

Currently, UNITAR has developed over 1,000 hours of study material, which can be used by participants and learners for different purposes to suit their training needs.
