Knowledge Management (KM) is a trans-disciplinary area that encapsulates processes and techniques for the creation, collection, classification, distribution, evaluation and re-use of institutional and personal knowledge. KM can help to widely share experiences, minimize re-inventing the wheel, promote trust, and facilitate learning environment in organisations. Many enterprises, local and international, have leveraged successfully on KM to enhance their competitiveness and innovations in the new economy. This is achieved by, among other things, minimizing “re-inventing the wheel”, maximizing reuse, enhancing the flow of knowledge, harnessing and sharing of critical knowledge, and providing a learning environment for knowledge workers. There is a critical shortage of KM professionals worldwide. With its blended mode of delivery, this MSc programme is the first of its kind designed to meet this need and beyond in the Asia Pacific region.
