Information management is the study of how ideas, knowledge and information are created, represented and communicated in social and business contexts. The courses also examine strategies and practices for the delivery of knowledge services for both organisations and communities in the 21st century.

They equip graduates with a deep, theoretically informed understanding of how knowledge and information are created, represented, communicated and used by individuals and groups both online and in the physical world. In addition, students develop the technical and project management skills needed to design, build and manage online information resources such as websites and digital repositories. Information management is the study of how ideas, knowledge and information are created, represented and communicated in social and business contexts.
