Business Information Systems --- In keeping with AACSB guidelines, this course focuses on information technologies as they influence the structure and processes of organizations and economies, and as they influence the roles and techniques of management. We will address such questions as: How do information systems influence organizational competitiveness? Why are technology infrastructures so important to modern organizations? What is the role of the Internet and networking technology in organizations? How do information systems enable organizational processes? How do organizations develop, acquire and implement information systems? What ethical, criminal and security issues do organizations face when using information systems? Students will acquire knowledge and skills in this area through discussion of articles selected from a variety of academic and business journals as well as several HBS cases.
