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.
