Principles of Information Systems
This course is designed for MBA students, (Current and future CEOs, CIOs, or members of senior management). Our goal is that when you face decisions that are overtly related to IT, you will be able to make better decisions that will increase the chances of success. Moreover, when you are thinking about a business goal that is not obviously related to IT, you will be able to identify how IT management may help you achieve it. We will accomplish this by allowing you to practice your decision-making. We will direct you, but you will do most of the reading by yourself. In addition, the course is based on case studies, in which we place ourselves into the shoes of decision-makers, argue for a course of action, and learn from their experience. Also, the course emphasizes a number of recurring themes that arise in many information technology decisions. If these concepts are internalized, your IT-related decisions will be improved.
