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.
