Abstract

The era of knowledge economy has arrived, and knowledge has become a key resource for enterprises. How to keep creating and using new knowledge has become an important concern for modern business administration. How to manage knowledge efficiently and effectively will become a crucial issue in future. However, owing to differences in educational backgrounds, people may have different perspectives on knowledge management (KM), and so the effectiveness of KM may not be maximized owing to lack of integration. In view of this, the Departments of Library and Information Science, Business Administration, Information Management, and Computer Science and Information Engineering of the National Taiwan University put together a KM Curriculum Program that seeks to educate and train all-round KM professionals. This paper begins with the proposition that KM will be the focus of business administration in the 21st century, followed by the need to train interdisciplinary KM professionals and create channels for such training. Lastly, it takes KM Curriculum Program, NTU as a sample to explain the ideas behind its education and training. Further, by sharing experiences, we hope to motivate other colleges and universities to draw up similar programs to train skilled KM professionals and to improve Taiwan's competitiveness in the business world.
