  1. mashallah, it looks interesting wallah and better than our curriculum.

    I liked the KM part 🙂

    Thanks Saleh for sharing this with us 🙂

  2. yeah wadha you are righ it is really amazing
    Saleh first of all thank you, how did you get this?? you are really information professional 🙂 second you made us feel disappointed ..comapring this one with our curriculum..i feel like we are in the stoneages..this is much more advenced:(
    i believe that this MIM is the same as LIS they just remove the word library.

  3. Thank u again sayed,, U have the experience in searching mashallah. We miss the word LIBRARY in this curriculum. At least they should add one course titled: The History of Libraries.

  4. Most of the classes are the same with different titles if you noticed. You have taken at least more than 50% of the material.

    ITs not fare to not be included in the new title.

    And by the way, do you think i should change the title of the blog to MIMKW.COM ? Blog Of Information Management in Kuwait?

  5. Wadha: you’re most welcom sis.. and the most ineresting part of it to me is the IS part..

    Fatma: wallah you’re right I also feel dissoppinted.. and I am not that smart to get these information 🙂 it was just a quick visit to the graduate building in Khaldia and the informaiton was in the catalog book there.. 🙂 and you’re most welcome sis..

    Ahmad: I am with you in adding the the course you proposed.. but the issue here is that no longer LIS program is existed.. they have replaced it 100%.. so no need to add library courses in the curriculum..

    MB: I think you right.. since I have taken some courses from the IT section such as Databases and info. systems, it is posible to take another 2 to 3 courses to chaneg me title to IM.. in your case you have taken some courses from KM section which is also benefcial for you to change the title..
