A career at your command
Did you know that professionals spend up to 50 per cent of their time searching for information? Today’s workplace relies on the accurate, efficient and secure management of information to meet operational demands, demonstrate legal compliance and maintain competitive advantage. Information Management (IM) is the processes and technology that controls the storage, structure, processing, access and usage of the information required for organizational and business intelligence.
IM professionals organize and manage all activities involved in the information life cycle, automating processes, reducing operating costs and improving efficiencies for an organization’s bottom line. They have the technical competencies needed to effectively analyze business processes and utilize IM tools and systems.
In CNA’s three-semester online Information Management post-diploma program, we provide the training ground for you to build a career in this field.

The program will prepare you to meet the demand in today’s rapidly changing world, and in the last semester you will have a chance to apply your knowledge in a seven-week work exposure and a capstone project. The future is at your fingertips!
