The course will provide students with an understanding of the three crucial IT-related characteristics of the international context: 1. information infrastructure, 2. the economic and policy environment, and 3. social and cultural structures. Students will develop analytic skills that will enable them to predict the implications of the international context for information technology and will apply these skills in a final project that addresses a problem in the areas such as information systems integration, interface design, or management of information technology projects.
