Comments about Master Information Services Management - At the institution - London - Greater London

  • Objectives
    The information profession is in a period of rapid change. New information and communications technologies have revolutionised the production, storage, retrieval and exploitation of information. The management of information services and the formulation of information policies have been correspondingly re-evaluated. Accredited by the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals, this course combines the theoretical and practical elements necessary to build a career in the information profession, with a focus on information services management. Work placements are a compulsory and integral part of the course for all full-time students. Placement hosts include public and academic libraries, charitable organisations, law firms, private companies, government departments and media organisations.
  • Entry requirements
    Normally a good Honours degree (2:2 or above) or equivalent, and at least 6 months of relevant work experience. Exceptionally, applicants without an Honours degree but with substantial experience of information work at middle or senior level will be accepted. Full-time students are expected to have had experience of at least six months in information work, though exceptionally this requirement can be waived. Part-time students are expected to be working in an information organisation, or to have had experience of such work.
