Master of Business Systems as information and knowledge management qualification

Abstract: Organisations in the 21st century face the challenge of either adopting rapidly emerging information- and knowledge-management systems or becoming uncompetitive and irrelevant. The performance of any organisation is strongly dependent on the correct use of information technology. Executives have to know and value the possibilities and potential of this technology in order to make their organisations as efficient as possible. This article argues that new executive skills are required to meet the challenge, and describes how a new, internationally accredited qualification at master’s level was developed to address the need. The qualification is aimed at university and college graduates who are now in business and who have some solid work experience. Participants learn to apply key features of information technology in the business environment through work-based projects.
