Course Objective:

Information technology has already become the largest of all corporate capital expenditures and an intrinsic component of most modern business processes. The high pace of the emergence of new information and communication technology elements and the growth of shared infrastructure make the conceptual understanding of the strategic and financial impact of IT a difficult task. Corporate computing paradigms often adapt to such experiences by taking new directions. The goal of this course is to provide budding managers with a new perspective on the nature of emerging information technologies and their impact on associated business directions.
