Harnessing the knowledge, skills and attitudes acquired in the courses and applying them to solve KM-related research problems, create new knowledge or develop new KM products or services is an essential part of the programme. In this respect, each student is mentored by a staff member in a project leading to a dissertation of up to 15,000 words. The Project can be in any area of the KM discipline. However, students are advised to work on a project that is related to their work or professional development.

* Not all the elective subjects will be offered in any given semester. While the Division will endeavour to offer as many elective subjects as possible, it cannot guarantee that students will be able to take all the elective subjects of their choice.
