Records and Information Management

Available at: Online part-time

Overview

All types of businesses and organizations have a need for records and information management. For example, all three levels of government – municipal, provincial and federal – need the services of an information specialist, as do insurance companies, banks, retail organizations, manufacturing companies and law firms. Career opportunities are most prevalent in medium to large companies.

This program is designed to prepare participants to operate a records management program in any organizational setting. With the increasing production of and demand for complex information and the widespread use of automated technologies, businesses, non-profit organizations and government agencies are striving to manage their information assets in an effective and efficient way. Records and information management programs contribute to the efficiency of an organization’s operations by providing systematic control of information resources, from creation through use, storage and final disposition.

To successfully complete this program, participants must complete five (5) compulsory courses and one (1) elective.

    Testimonials

    There are just so many great things to say about the teaching staff in the business program. I always think that they expect a lot from us, getting our homework done and being prepared for class discussion. But we, as students, expected a lot from them as well, being prepared to teach us everything we need to know. I feel the business department did a great job of holding up their end of the bargin.
