Information Management (IM)

This field is a strategic response to society’s changing needs. It will continue to evolve as organizations cope with the proliferation and complexity of new information technologies and services. It is the first of its kind in Southeast Asia.

Information is an essential resource for academic excellence, competitiveness in business and industry, scientific progress, and national development. Like any other resource, information must be managed. High-quality sources must be located, and arrangements must be made for access to timely, accurate, appropriate, and cost-effective information. Technological advances in telecommunications and the hardware and software of computing can be utilized to provide optimum access to information.

The need for information management skills in government and private organizations is increasingly recognized. People knowledgeable in methods of facilitating information collection, dissemination, and use are in demand. Such persons should also be skilled in identifying information needs and in accessing, repackaging, and presenting information in such a way that it can be utilized in support of the objectives of the users.

The Information Management curriculum is designed to prepare students to respond to four basic challenges confronting organizations today:

  • Planning the effective use of information and utilization of communication technologies within organizations;
  • Developing corporate and government policies to maximize the benefits resulting from the widespread use of these technologies;
  • Improving the strategic management of information resources in business, government, and non-profit organizations;
  • Increasing the productivity and creativity of managers and executives who work with information resources.
