Technology is radically altering the worldís 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 K204 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
todayís 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.
