Learn practical and managerial skills to prepare for work as an information professional who can confidently apply IT solutions and manage the impact of new information-based products and services.
RMIT has offered postgraduate studies in information management for over fifty years. It is valued by industry and students and students will benefit from exposure to an enviable range of professional networks and career opportunities.
You may choose to complete this program face-to-face at the Melbourne City campus, or entirely online, or blend the different modes of study to suit your personal or professional needs. Each face-to-face course usually involves 3 hours of class contact per week and approximately 6 hours of out-of-class preparation and assignment work. Classes are usually offered in the afternoon or early evening.
Your classes will mostly be held at the Swanston Academic Building where innovative learning spaces are interspersed with retail and social spaces resulting in a stimulating environment for business students.
Online study requires a similar time commitment - approximately 9 hours of study per course, per week - and is conducted through the myRMIT student portal. You will be expected to work independently and in groups using technologies available through the online delivery.
RMIT offers a variety of learning and teaching approaches including lectures, seminars, studios, workshops, presentations, group discussions and syndicate work.
Ongoing assessment throughout the semester includes examinations, essays, reports, presentations, group projects, research projects, quizzes and tests, blog journals and practical assignments.
Through RMIT University’s online learning portal, myRMIT, you will be able to view online resources and learning activities created by lecturers, access course materials via Blackboard, collaborate with lecturers and fellow students, and access your student email account. Educational software, the Learning Hub, other online and digital resources and printers are accessible on campus via the RMIT wireless network using your own laptop, tablet or smart phone or via computer facilities on-campus. You will be able to access the same software from home using myDesktop.
