Unit Description 

This unit focuses on information technology and applications in business contexts. It provides students with a real-world understanding of information systems (ISs) and a firm foundation in business-related information technology (IT) on which they can build successful careers. Students will know enough about IT to work productively with IT specialists, and they will know enough about business applications to get information systems to support their work in the best way possible. “Real world” examples of business scenarios are discussed weekly to provide a narrative similar to the challenges and opportunities a business professional or entrepreneur would encounter in a company. Ultimately, they will give students the opportunity to integrate business IT principles, view IS issues in action, and to solve business problems related to IT just as they arise in the real world. The running case approach shows students how the full range of business functions operate while gaining an in-depth knowledge of a specific business.
