This course gives an overview of the utilization of information technologies (IT) in organizational settings. Extensive examples are used to explain how information systems (IS) are designed to collect, aggregate, classify, and organize information to facilitate decision making in this fast-changing business world. Enterprise information systems are introduced to illustrate how they can support and streamline business processes at the inter-organizational level (i.e. customers and supply chains). Emphasis is on end users’ role in developing and managing information systems and on the uses of IT to gain competitive advantages.

In addition to key MIS concepts, this course also prepares students to gain hands-on experience in working with business applications and sample datasets in the following two areas:

a)     Project management practices (using Microsoft Project)

b)     Data management and analyses (using Microsoft Excel and Access)
