Technology is radically altering the world's economic landscape. We
see startup companies and industries emerging to ride the waves of
change and at the same time see older, established organizations
reorganizing, regrouping and redefining themselves to keep from being
washed away! How do these forces affect you as future employees,
employers, and/or business owners? What do you need to know in order
to make efficient and effective decisions where technology is
concerned? This special offering of K201 will examine and explore the
powerful technological forces at work in society today and assist
students in developing essential analytical and problem-solving skills
as they relate to technology. The course will provide students with
the ability not only to analyze and solve problems as they relate to
today's technological challenges, but also to apply these same
analytical and problem-solving skills to technological challenges yet
to come. Students will be required to solve real world business
problems using the most popular business tools (Excel, Access,
Netscape, etc.). Additionally, students are required to integrate
these problem-solving skills with the conceptual segment of the
course, which centers on the role of technology in the modern business
enterprise. Because of its strong business orientation, this course is
intended for students entering the Kelley School of Business.
