Information and Process Management (IPM)

Courses in Information and Process Management (IPM) focus on two managerial questions that are essential for modern organizations: How to ensure that the right people have the right information at the right time, and how to structure organizational processes so that they best serve the organization’s goals. In our IPM courses, you’ll learn how information and process goals can be achieved following policies and practices that ensure security and privacy of individuals and companies. Selection and configuration of large-scale enterprise systems are key elements of the department’s offerings. IPM also enables you to partner with real-world organizations to help them define and execute more efficient and effective end-to-end strategies.
