MSc in Knowledge Management




What will I learn?

Programme Overview

Knowledge Management (KM) is a discipline that promotes an integrated approach to identifying, capturing, evacuating, retrieving, and sharing all of an enterprise's information assets. These assets may include databases, documents, policies, procedures, and previously uncultured expertise, experience and social networks in individual workers.

The MSc in Knowledge Management (KM) programme is designed for students from both public and private sector organizations that utilizes human and knowledge resources to contribute directly to its survivability and profitability.

The following highlights the key features of the KM programme:

· It is the only full-fledged KM graduate programme in Singapore

· Blend theory with industry practice with inputs from the members of the Knowledge Management Society of Singapore (KMS)

· Emphasis on creativity innovation, which is critical for today's organizations to prepare professionals to champion and implement KM initiatives in their organizations

·​ A holistic approach to KM that emphasizes the importance of people in an organization

Career Opportunities

Employment is available with the private sector and government institutions, both in Singapore and around the globe. While the strategies and approaches to implementing KM vary between organizations, it is impossible to identify some generic roles that have been created to implement KM initiatives. It is important to note that particularly in small organizations, where the size does not warrant full time positions, KM responsibilities are added to existing roles. Similarly, as KM is a multi-disciplinary subject, many jobs do not necessarily use the word Knowledge in their titles.
