The MIS course provides concepts, methods, and techniques to identify an organization’s information needs and to employ systems to meet these needs. This course provides a basic perspective on the design, development, implementation, utilization, and administration of computer-based information systems. Topics covered include systems analysis and design; decision support systems; artificial intelligence including expert systems, fuzzy logic and neural networks; end-user computing; telecommunications including the internet; and the application of information systems to a firm’s competitive strategy.
