This CILIP-accredited course focuses on the theoretical and practical skills you need for a career in information management.

The aim is to make you into the kind of person employers are looking for: information literate with the technical know-how to develop, design and manage information systems.

You will acquire valuable transferable skills such as presentation and report writing. We can help develop your skills as an information leader.

The course is research-led, which means that you’ll learn about the latest concepts from academics who work with organisations to drive developments in this field.

Alongside the theory and technical skills, you’ll develop some valuable attributes including effective communication, application of research methods and creative problem solving.

If you’re an experienced professional, you could consider taking the MA/PGDip/PGCert (Professional Enhancement Programme) Information Management.
