21210032 - KNOWLEDGE MANAGEMENT IN THE DIGITAL AGE

The course aims to investigate the major issues related to the management of corporate knowledge, particularly with regard to information-intensive sectors and in the broader context of the knowledge-based view of the firm. Given the rapid obsolescence of the knowledge base, firms need to constantly renew their knowledge management strategies and practices. Thus, students will engage in active participation through exercises and project work in order to understand strategies of knowledge management, organizational conditions and enabling technologies. This course is designed to understand the role of data-driven knowledge within the contemporary economy, and to provide the students with a clear analysis of the production, distribution, and consumption of information-based goods.
