MSc in Information Management
Presentation of IM
Information is the foundation for company decisions, and therefore you need the right information at the right time. At IM you learn the different steps of the process of managing information – and you learn what kind of information is necessary in the different parts of the organisation.
In this profile, information is seen as a strategic resource to the company. It is an influencing factor in a company’s competitiveness, and successful information management is at the same time hard to imitate. Therefore, you will learn how to contribute to the day-to-day operations, but you will also get an understanding of how to change the process of information management, and thereby improve the functioning of the company.
Information and organisation
At IM you will be taught courses within the areas of information, organisation, technology and communication. At the same time, you will learn how these areas intertwine. To provide the right information you need to know the needs of the organisation. To handle a big amount of data, you need to understand the possibilities and limitations of IT. To share the information, you need to make use of communication.
Information is seen as any kind of structured data, and you will learn the various dimensions of the process of managing information in a company. Not with a focus on understanding a company as a business, but as a structure with possibilities, limitations and needs. Neither way, the focus will be on information as knowledge. Instead you will learn to be a part of and managing the process of obtaining and providing the right information.
