From UC Berkeley:

“The Master of Information Management and Systems (MIMS) program is a 48 unit, two-year full time program, designed to train students in the skills needed to succeed as information professional. Such professionals must be familiar with the theory and practice of storing, organizing, retrieving and analyzing information in a variety of settings in business, the public sector, and the academic world. Technical expertise alone is not sufficient for success; I School graduates will be expected to perform and manage a multiplicity of information related tasks.

Graduates of the MIMS program will be able to:

  • Identify and address user and stakeholder information and resource needs in context.
  • Make and assess information design decisions iteratively.
  • Intentionally organize collections of information and other resources to support human and/or machine-based interactions and services.
  • Understand and apply foundational principles and debates of information law, policy, and ethics.
  • Analyze complex relationships and practical choices at the intersection of technical design, policy frameworks, and ethics.
  • Understand and apply fundamental principles and debates of information economics
  • Understand and apply architectural, computational, and algorithmic thinking and principles of concurrency to the design of information systems.
  • Scope, plan and manage open-ended projects, both individually and in teams.
  • Present findings and conclusions persuasively.

Such a profession is inherently interdisciplinary, requiring aspects of computer science, cognitive science, psychology and sociology, economics, business, law, library/information studies, and communications.”
