Knowledge Management and its Importance in Students Education

Dimitrina Papagalska, University of National and World Economy (Bulgaria)


In modern times in which every day there is an active exchange of information of all kinds through various media and in various forms, and in which knowledge is an extremely valuable resource, its management is becoming an extremely important skill, both for individuals and for organizations of all kinds - state, commercial, non-governmental. Knowledge is power. And as soon as its barer finds his or her specific knowledge, that has the potential to transform itself to assets and by this – contribute to certain aspects of competitiveness, he or she must know or learn how to manage that knowledge to achieve the goals that have been set. The knowledge itself may be in the forms of specific skills; certain contacts; procedures and other documents; knowledge of products, services, and processes; know how; trade secrets; etc.


The purpose of this report is to present a model of knowledge management curriculum which can be used in the preparation of students in economics specialities, who have already acquired a solid foundation of knowledge and skills in fundamental disciplines such as economics, management, intellectual property, entrepreneurship, etc. Students will learn how to identify, systematise, structure, and manage organizational knowledge including by transferring it. They will be thought how to identify possible correlations between intellectual property and organizational knowledge, and in particular - what are the ways to protect it through the intellectual property system and how intellectual property can be a resource for the emergence of organizational knowledge. Special attention in the curriculum is given to the role of organizational knowledge in achieving and maintaining competitiveness, as well as the various organizational strategies for acquiring, retaining, and developing such knowledge.


The proposal for such a curriculum is also in response to one of the key competences for lifelong learning recommended by the European Council on May 2018 namely the ‘personal, social and learning to learn competence’ which is ‘the ability to reflect upon oneself, effectively manage time and information, work with others in a constructive way, remain resilient and manage one’s own learning and career’ [1].
