Recognition Award for Information Management Research
The University of Oregon Applied Information Management (AIM) Master’s Degree Program is well known for the cutting-edge research conducted by students in the final phase of study. AIM students all work full time while attending school online part time. Writing a research paper provides them with an opportunity to select a topic in the larger field of information management and build a clearly defined link between their professional activity and an academic inquiry.
Research studies are grounded in a variety of contexts, including higher education, government operations and private industries (both the US and within a global context). Search titles and abstracts for AIM students' research papers from 1995 to present. Each year an award is presented to recognize excellent research, with focus on three categories: (a) execution of the overall research process, (b) depth of the research design, and (c) quality of the research outcome.
This year, the award was presented to Gabriel Edwards ('17) for his research project entitled Best Practices for Knowledge Management Within the Naval Aviation Enterprise. Gabe is currently a lieutenant commander in the United States Navy.
