Catalog Description
The 21st Century enterprise runs on information. Business leaders must have ready access to timely, accurate and relevant information if they are to manage and compete effectively in the global economy. MISM 2301 addresses the central role of information management (IM) and information technology (IT) systems in enabling current business activities. To this end, the course explores how a wide range of enterprises around the world employ information management to operate, to manage and control, and to plan and innovate. The course is entirely case-driven, focusing on real business issues, analysis and problem solving, and out-of-the-box thinking in the creation of value for the enterprise through the effective application of IM and IT. Thus, rather than a focus on specific technical content or skills, MISM 2301 considers the application of IM and IT in running and managing a business and in infusing them with competitive advantage.
