Knowledge Management

Why Study Knowledge Management at Kent State University?

  • Get a master's degree or graduate certificate. (You can also enroll in up to six (6) credits as a guest if you're not sure whether you want to pursue the degree or certificate. The credits you earn as a guest can apply to the degree or certificate if you make that decision.)
  • Take all your courses online. Some are taught asynchronously and others are taught synchronously. Whenever we teach a course synchronously (i.e., the students all meet online on the same day/time), we record the lecture so those who cannot participate live for any reason can still access full content. We are exploring other learning models that would support a growing international student body.
  • Be part of our very robust and engaged study body. Our students represent all economic sectors and all kinds of organizations. Most of our students are working adults who may take only one or two courses a semester.
  • Learn from international experts who have Ph.D.s, which qualify them to provide the highest level of educational experience, and who also are engaged in KM practice and bring real life experiences to their teaching.
  • Select electives and define independent studies that will prepare you for the KM career you want to pursue.

Students in KM at Kent State get a firm foundation from full-time faculty and internationally recognized KM experts working in the field. They learn best practices from their peers, many of whom are also professionals working in KM. Through coursework, projects and internships, students get real-world, practical experience.
