The Knowledge and Information Systems Management programme introduces participants to the effective analysis, design, delivery, use and management of knowledge and information systems in organisations and society.
This MSc provides a conceptual framework for organisational information and knowledge management, acknowledging the importance of the integration of business and information systems strategy, and focusing on topics such as business intelligence, e-business, and human-computer interaction.
The programme provides an excellent basis for those people who wish to have careers in knowledge and information systems management or carry out research in the discipline. It is particularly suitable both for recent graduates in strongly technical disciplines and for recent graduates in general management fields.
The full-time programme involves nine months of taught study. This period is divided into two semesters, with examinations at the end of each semester in January and May/June. After having completed the taught part of the programme, full-time students then continue work on their dissertation, to be submitted in September. The part-time programme typically involves taught study over two nine-month periods, followed by work for six months on a dissertation.
Teaching on the KISM Masters course will be organised in two-hour or four-hour sessions. Teaching takes place during the autumn, spring and summer terms.
The dissertation module provides an opportunity for students to develop, execute and write out a piece of research into a specific aspect relevant to the programme. Dissertation projects are undertaken by individual students under supervisory guidance.
