X202 | ALL | Staff
BUS X 202 Technology: Honors (3 cr.) P: K201 or K204 with a grade of C or better
and admission to the Hutton Honors College or the Business Honors Program. X202
substitutes for X201, an I-Core prerequisite that is required of all business majors.
It consists of two components: a lab and a lecture. The course provides an introduction
to a range of technologies currently used in organizations including a broad understanding
of how technologies are deployed, their impact and potential, and their strategic
importance. Student projects focus on technologies that transform data into usable
information to enhance decision making. They rely heavily upon Microsoft Excel and,
to a lesser extent, Microsoft Access to develop sophisticated data analysis and
modeling tools. X202 is the honors version of X201, and it shares the same basic
course content as X201. However, its in-class applications and its projects and
exams are more challenging than those in X201.
