Education for knowledge management

Abstract: There are two key problems in designing curriculum for knowledge management (KM). The first is that what the business community means by KM is in many cases not what the academic community understands the term to mean. Second, professional schools while providing the educational background needed for subsequent more senior positions, tend to educate for the skills needed for entry level positions, whereas KM jobs are senior level jobs that require a deep understanding of the organizational context and culture.
