IST 337 Technologies for Digital Entrepreneurs (3)

This course introduces the student to the applications, technologies, and tools for entrepreneurs engaging in or considering engaging in a start-up or running a small-to-medium size business. Although there will be some consideration of product concept development and implementation, much of the course will be devoted to the tools and infrastructure need to support a start-up up a small-to-medium size business. These concepts and skills will also support entrepreneurs looking to develop new applications to open new market opportunities.

This will be a very hands-on and active class that relies on approaches such as problem-based learning (PBL), “flipped” classrooms, and learning by doing. Students will spend time outside class learning key concepts and time inside class applying them. Students will have the opportunity to implement applications of the back-end technologies in support of a start-up or small- or medium-sized enterprises.
