Abstract

This document details an international information resources management (IRM) curriculum for four-year undergraduate level programs specifically designed to meet these needs. The curriculum provides a model for individual universities to tailor to their own situation. That is, the IRMA/DAMA Curriculum Model is a generic framework for universities to customize in light of their specific situations. This curriculum model prepares students to understand the concepts of information resources management and technologies, methods, and management procedures to collect, analyze and disseminate information throughout organizations in order to remain competitive in the global business world. These are all aspects of managing information. It outlines core course descriptions, rationales, and objectives and includes suggested specific course topics and the percentage of emphasis. This Curriculum Model addresses the needs of two distinct sets of learners: 1. Students currently employed or seeking employment in the IRM field and, 2. All business students.
