IKNS Required Courses

Grounded in the discipline of Knowledge Management, our inter-disciplinary curriculum equips you with theoretical foundations in information science, organizational psychology, and change management as well as practical skills in project management and executive leadership to dramatically increase your impact – whether in your current organization or for a career pivot.

The 6 required courses are designed to provide a holistic and interdisciplinary experience, covering the full spectrum of enterprise-wide knowledge strategy, from business analytics and Artificial Intelligence, collaboration and team/project management, to digital transformation and change management.

Course sequence: The Foundations course, offered in the fall, is required for all incoming students in their first semester. The Capstone course, also offered in the fall, may be taken in the third semester or later. The four other required courses can be taken in a sequence of your choosing. Required courses are offered in the fall or spring semester only (whereas elective courses can be taken in the fall, spring, or summer semester).
