Abstract: Knowledge Management (KM) can perhaps best be described as the strategic process through which an organization maximizes value from its intellectual and knowledge-based assets. It involves creating effective methods for building relationships and trust among employees so knowledge will be recognized, captured, organized, evaluated, shared, applied and reused in the most productive manner possible to fulfill the organization’s goals. Because of the importance of using and reusing this knowledge base, a growing number of public and private sector organizations are implementing KM programs to increase efficiency, productivity, and their competitive advantage. To help meet the demand for educated KM professionals, California State University, Northridge (CSUN) is offering an innovative, integrated master’s degree program in KM through the Roland Tseng College of Extended Learning. This paper outlines CSUN’s unique curriculum development process to create a practical KM master’s degree program.
