Certificate in Digital Asset Management


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: School of Information Studies

Digital asset management is a new and growing profession; from manufacturing and retail to healthcare, education, and cultural heritage, organizations struggle to manage their digital assets. Digital asset management involves processes for organizing, storing and retrieving complex information objects and rich media such as digital photos, music, videos, animations, podcasts, and other multimedia content. Skills required for digital asset management include content curation, cataloging, metadata development, media migration, governance, user support, life cycle management, project management, and taxonomies.

The SOIS certificate in digital asset management provides:

  • A theoretical foundation of the values, technologies, and applications of digital asset management and how they apply to meet the needs of users and organizations.
  • A practical foundation which includes understanding and applying data quality metrics, digital workflows, metadata standards, taxonomy structures, and technology solutions to manage digital assets.

Additional Information


  • Certificates are offered for students currently pursuing a master of library and information science degree, a master of science in information management degree, or a master in business administration degree, as well as a post-master degree accreditation for returning scholars who want to add the specialization to a completed master’s degree. 
  • Students who graduate with a Dominican master’s degree lacking one or more courses towards a certificate can enroll in the course(s) any time within five years of graduating in order to add the certificate to their transcript. Students must enroll as a student-at-large (credit-bearing), not as an auditor (non-credit-bearing).
  • Students seeking two certificates may use courses that “count” toward more than one to fulfill requirements for both certificates. In other words, if a course is eligible for two certificates the student need only take it once, and may apply its credit toward both.
  • Students may also combine this certificate with other coursework toward the Master of Professional Studies .
