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.
