MS in Information Management (MS/IM)


Offered both on campus and online*, the MS/IM prepares leaders in the field who develop services and systems to meet human information needs in a range of employment settings. The degree is designed to meet the demand for well-prepared information professionals who are skilled in using, managing, analyzing, and distributing information. Our MS/IM graduates are poised to lead the way in wielding the world’s growing information resources for the greater good.

Identify and Land Your Dream Job


With only three required courses—and a programming course, if needed—the curriculum is very flexible and can be customized based on career interests. Students work with professors and advisors to identify strengths and build the skills required to meet the needs of employers in that field. The MS/IM helps you identify your dream job and then positions you for a successful career.

You have the opportunity to choose from two professional pathways at the intersection of people, information, and technology:

  • Data science and analytics
  • Knowledge management and information consulting

The deadline for fall 2020 admissions consideration to the on-campus IM degree is February 1, 2020.
