How healthy is your organisation's digital ecosystem? Many organisations have systems that don’t talk to each other, or systems that require significant physical manipulation of data to draw insights, all of which drain on an organisation's productivity, capital and morale.
There is an increasing need for employees with the knowledge and skills to negotiate these new digital environments.
Digital Information Management will build your understanding of how knowledge and information are created, represented and communicated, both in the digital and physical world.
This course is embedded in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences.
This degree prepares you for the challenges of working in any 21st-century organisation—corporate, cultural or governmental. All deal with information, whether it is creating, organising or preserving it, no matter what its format is.
Using reliable information, best practices and international standards of metadata, you can learn how to curate and organise the data so that data can be aligned and synced when integrated into the new system.

Completing the course significantly improved my career options – in fact, I met one employer when they were a guest lecturer in the Knowledge Management Strategies subject. Finishing the masters has also provided me with a level of expertise and confidence I did not previously possess. Since graduating I have happily found my qualifications to be highly respected by prospective employers.

I also chose this course because it provided a flexible, face-to-face learning environment with evening classes that allowed me to study part-time on campus while working full-time. The course introduced me to
