Some Perspective
  • Even if you are not an MIS major, or even interested in information systems and/or technology, you can benefit from:
    • A basic level of comfort with technology and information systems
    • A basic understanding of databases and data
    • A basic understanding of how you can use readily available tools like Excel
    • A basic understanding of the role and functionality of IS/IT in the world today

  • Format of the Course:
    • Lecture-based with hands-on in-class exercises to enforce / clarify concepts
    • Requires you to do out-of-class reading
    • Depending on your level of comfort with certain software, may require you to do out-of-class work on your computer
  • Introduce you to basic information systems concepts and terminology.

  • NOT a software training class
  • You are required to use MS Access and MS Excel as part of the class
  • I use software to illustrate specific concepts and/or techniques but I’m not focused on teaching you how to use software
    • This means that we may move faster than some of you would like and that many of you will need to practice what we learn in class on your own (outside of class)

  • I assume that you already have a basic understanding and level of comfort with the MS Office Suite (Word, Excel, Powerpoint) from BSAD 40 If not, you should consider taking an additional class related to software
