Foundations of Information Technology Management (MIS 302F) is an introduction to information  technology and management information systems.  This course focuses on two broad issues: using IT for  competitive advantage and developing core IT-related skills and management understanding from a non- technical point-of-view.  The objective of the class is to help you develop these skills and learn how to  apply them in your future career. The topics covered in this class include the IT ecosystem, using information systems (IS) for competitive  advantage, software design, enterprise systems (ERPs), customer relationship management systems  (CRMs), supply chain management systems (SCMs), e-commerce, business intelligence, internet  technologies, databases, and IT security.  While there is some introduction to the practical use of hands- MIS 302F Syllabus, Fall 2010 Doug Verduzco Page 1 of 7 MIS 302F: F OUNDATIONS OF I NFORMATION T ECHNOLOGY F ALL 2010 C OURSE S YLLABUS

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
