Are there any UW or external online classes I can take to be a more competitive applicant if I don’t have much experience in the field?

September 23, 2022

There is no prerequisite knowledge that applicants need to demonstrate to apply for and enroll in this program. Students come from a multitude of backgrounds, and all MSIM students benefit from the diverse experience and knowledge represented among their peers, both in and outside of the classroom.

Those wishing to improve the competitiveness of their application are advised to learn more about MSIM, the UW iSchool and the field of Information Management. We encourage you to think deeply on how the degree can impact your professional goals and reflect this insight via your personal statement.
