Knowledge and Technology Management is a trans-disciplinary area that encapsulates processes and techniques for the creation, collection, classification, distribution, evaluation and re-use of institutional and personal knowledge. The programme is offered by The Hong Kong Polytechnic University.


Knowledge and Technology Management can help to widely share experiences, minimise re-inventing the wheel, promote trust and facilitate learning environments in organisations. Many enterprises, local and international, have successfully leveraged KM to enhance their competitiveness and innovation in the new economy. Amongst other things, this is achieved by maximising reuse, enhancing the flow of knowledge, harnessing and sharing critical knowledge and providing a learning environment for knowledge workers. There is a critical shortage of KM professionals worldwide. With its blended mode of delivery, this MSc programme is the first designed to meet this need and beyond in the Asia-Pacific region.


The curriculum of this programme was co-developed by an international team of leading experts and scholars in Knowledge Management. The programme is delivered through a balanced mix of in-person classes and online tutorials, supplemented by web-based content with enhanced pedagogy. It features:

  • A balanced approach to theory and practice supplemented by case studies from Asia and around the world;
  • The right blend of human and IT-oriented approaches to manage knowledge at the personal, group and organisational levels;
  • A flexible study mode to offer the preferred work and lifestyle balance for every learner; and
  • Delivery by staff and adjunct faculty members of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University.
