Foundations of Information Technology Management (MIS 302F) is an introduction to information  technology and management information systems.  This course focuses on two broad issues: (a) using IT  for strategic, competitive advantage and (b) core IT skills and management.  The objective of the class is  to help you develop a better understanding of these concepts and learn how to apply them to your career.
