Information management is a business function that’s critical to the operation of every modern organisation. It involves the careful management of people, processes and technology to ensure that information is handled effectively and lawfully. 

In this specialisation, you’ll learn how to investigate and understand an area of an organisation that’s in need of improvement. You’ll be able to identify where information systems and technology can aid the organisation, and you’ll have the skills to recommend, create, introduce and manage new systems to bring about improvements.

The knowledge and skills you develop will boost your employability through developing your ICT-related problem-solving skills and in-depth understanding of what actually works to solve problems in real organisational contexts.

Why study

Our academic staff are highly dedicated and experienced in practice, teaching, and research into new and better ways to do both practice and teaching.

You’ll have the opportunity to learn practical skills and techniques that will allow you to make valuable contributions to any organisation you work for, or your own business.

Advanced standing

At Curtin, we understand that everyone’s study journey has been different.

You may have already studied some of the units (subjects) listed in your Curtin course, or you may have work experience that matches the degree requirements.

If this applies to you, you can apply for credit for recognised learning (CRL), which means your previous study is recognised and matched against a similar unit in your intended Curtin course.

A successful CRL application exempts you from having to complete certain units within your course and means you could finish your degree in a shorter amount of time.

CRL is also known as recognition of prior learning, advanced standing and credit transfer.
