|ISM 2201 - Systems Analysis & Design|
This course provides a real-world understanding of information systems (ISs) for business and computer science students as well as providing students with a firm foundation in business-related information technology (IT) on which they can build successful careers regardless of the particular field they choose. The fundamental principle guiding this course is that ISs are everywhere in business. Information systems are pervasive because information is the single most powerful resource in every business function in every industry. Knowledge of IT is not always explicitly stated as a job requirement but it is an essential element of success in virtually any position. Not everyone in business needs to have all the technical skills of an IT professional but everyone needs a deep enough understanding of the subject to know how to use IT in their profession.
