Information & Communication Technologies (ICTs) have taken over many human activities, becoming a central tool in many of the management tasks we execute today. The use of Information Systems is central for managing various companies, administrative bodies, and international organizations. Furthermore, computer-based information systems are a strong driver of competitive advantage and business model innovation.

Information systems - intended as systems used to process information in organizations - have always been present in organizations, but it is the diffusion of computer systems that has made them so important to business management. Information systems heavily build on ICTs, but they are not just a matter of computer science. The union between the technology and the staff in organizations make information systems socio-technical systems where the performance of the technology is just a part of the picture because information systems impact and are impacted by human behavior and managerial capabilities.

This course provides you with knowledge and insight into how organizations improve their business practices by using computer-based information systems. Understanding what ICTs can afford individuals and organizations as well as understanding how to manage ICTs to support organizational goals are both important skills required by the job market. This course aims to provide you with the knowledge and capabilities to turn technological innovation into competitive advantage.

Using case studies, practical activities in class, and group work the course provides basic knowledge on what information systems are and how they impact the management of organizations. You will be presented with managerial theories explaining how information systems are used in organizations, and you will discuss cases in class. Divided in groups, students will work also on analyzing real life cases and on formulating solutions to case problems.

**Due to the interdisciplinary nature of the content, this course is cross-listed with Management Information Systems (MIS335FCO) as well as Business (BUS335FCO). The instructor will provide directions during the first week of class regarding how to choose your desired course code.
