Titel: Curriculum design for information management
Built-in cooperation with business community
Forfatter: Madsen, Dorte
Resume: The purpose of this paper is to present the design of a three year bachelor’s programme in information management. In 2006, a new educational programme in Information Management was launched at Copenhagen Business School (CBS) in Denmark: BA in Information Management (http://www.cbs.dk/im). Developing this programme was motivated by a wish to launch a programme with a specific focus on the emerging digital, global information world in which we live, and the initiation of the programme was motivated by a strong demand from the business community calling for graduates with a holistic view of information processes and practices in organisations. The paper focuses on the underlying model for curriculum design which has been developed at CBS. The model takes its starting point in the business community’s perception of the graduates’ future practice. In the bachelor’s programme in information management, the cooperation with the business community has been built into the curriculum design in the form of problem-based projects and an internship. On the basis of a survey of the business community’s perception of future practice, a qualifications profile for the programme was formulated. The importance of problem-oriented work is discussed, as well as the interplay between problem-based and discipline-based elements in the curriculum design.
