MIS 204H Introduction to Management Information Systems Honors (3)
This honors section of MIS 204, will provide enhanced, in depth learning for Schreyer Honor students. MIS 204 is an applications-oriented course that provides an overview of (1) the role of information systems in business process design, (2) the current technologies used for obtaining, storing, and communicating information in support of operations and decision-making within a business organizations, and (3) the concepts and principles for programming, developing, and using popular spreadsheet and database tools. Applications focus on important problems and issues found in business disciplines, including accounting, finance, marketing, supply chain operations, and general management.
The responsibility to understand and recognize opportunities to use information systems belongs to all managers in an organization, not just the information technology managers. As future business managers in diverse functional areas, our students begin their journey to understand the foundations of information systems and how managers are using these systems to increase the competitiveness of their organizations.
As an introductory course, students should be able to come into the class without any prior experience. However, even students with experience will hopefully learn something new. Students will develop a general understanding of how a business functions, understand how information and technology is used within a business and develop new student IT skill sets. In summary, we aim to provide an opportunity for all undergraduate business majors to use IT in their current or future jobs in such a way to ensure the success of their organization.
In addition, the Schreyer Honor students will also be exposed to business data mining, a highly intelligent application of information technology in a variety of business contexts that often lead to core competitive advantages.
