Description

Advertisement

This course aims to give you the professional skills to help public sector organisations distil useful information from the mass of data available and, once they have that information, to get full value from it.

"Information is our most valuable resource" is often heard in management circles. And it's true technology makes it possible to generate endless data from every area of operations. But most organisations suffer from an overload rather than a shortage, with widespread duplication whilst retaining silo thinking. Unlocking the true value of this resource in today's environment is the major challenge facing information specialists.

Our new Information Management and Knowledge Sharing MSc is designed to give you the skills for this emerging challenge. This joint programme from Kingston's business and information systems specialists focuses on managerial, social and behavioural issues in relation to information and knowledge. An appreciation of technical issues may be helpful, but is by no means a prerequisite.

This course is one of a series offering professional development in specific market areas. It is ideal for existing public sector employees working in related fields and others looking to specialise in this area of employment. By using practical examples and the input of current practitioners, this professional masters degree will help you bring the very latest thinking to bear in the workplace.

What will you study
We aim to equip you to work with decision makers across the organisation, influencing and guiding them towards a better way of looking at information and knowledge. The course covers everything from comparing the nature of information and knowledge assets with traditional resources, such as money, people and plant, through to designing and building an effective information governance regime and ultimately developing an information strategy.

If you are interested in managing information and knowledge as resources, to help organisations thrive in difficult and changing times, completing this programme could make you indispensable.

This is a modular programme, comprising eight core modules and a dissertation.

English Language Requirements

IELTS band: 6.5

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.

The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.
