The pace of change is accelerating. Competition for the right talent is fierce. And ‘talent’ no longer means the same as ten years ago; many of the roles, skills and job titles of tomorrow are unknown to us today.

Final Project Career Brand Management

I built this concentration to develop my cognitive and administrative abilities to process information and to be super smart with how I go about developing a flexible career in an age of rapid skillset shifts and increasing reliance on big data…

Neurons are living cells with a metabolism; they need oxygen and glucose to survive and when they’ve been working hard, we experience fatigue. Every status update you read on Facebook, every tweet or text you get from a friend, is competing for resources in your brain with important things like whether to put your savings in stocks or bonds, where you left your passport, or how best to reconcile with a close friend you just had an argument with.

Daniel Levitin, The Organized Mind: Thinking Straight in the Age of Information Overload, 2015:6-7

I wanted to learn how to think properly.

Everyone knows how to think because everyone does it every day of their lives.

But there is a whole world of difference between habitual thinking that upholds the firmly established conventions of a day-to-day routine and radical thinking that challenges deeply held beliefs and opens your mind to new information and new ways of thinking that can, well, change your mind.

Information management is not just about the processing of information from an organizational perspective.

Administrative information governance and its legal and ethical considerations are definitely useful to know and this concentration does cover them.

Information management is equally about how you cognitively process information within your mind.
