NEW PROGRAM

New Minor in Knowledge Management Technology

Justification: The minor concentrates on the technology aspects of knowledge management and intends to prepare students to become knowledge workers in their chosen concentration areas of study. It places emphases on the discovery of knowledge through traditional and contemporary techniques, and the application of knowledge in decision making through analysis and critical thinking using IT as the primary means for these activities. The presiding learning goal of the minor aligns learning activities toward achieving the following: To use IT to model information for the discovery of knowledge and support effective decision making.
The following learning objectives ensure the attainment of the goal:
•  Developing the necessary skill sets that lead to the discovery of knowledge, including the exposure to various IT-based tools and methods for discover,
•  Involving analytical and critical thinking skills in the application of knowledge toward effective decision making, including an understanding of management concepts and methods to exploit intellectual capital,
•  Applying strategy in decision making, including the implementation of KM systems and the cultivation of leadership roles.
Because KMT is interdisciplinary in nature, it complements and enhances the practices of a concentration area. It complements by broadening the students' understanding of the applications within a concentration through practice. The exposure to KMT tools and methods enhance students' backgrounds as they become better versed and more apt in their chosen concentrations, thereby adding depth to knowledge. Thus, upon completing the minor, graduates will be capable of adding value to their future employers.
