Fundamentals in computer programming in business. Through working on various mini business applications (such as web design, data processing, and data visualization), students will learn programming concepts, software development principles, and computational problem-solving skills. 

Introduction to the management and use of information systems (IS) in organizations. Topics such as functional information systems, enterprise information systems, e-business, system design, implementation and evaluation, and ethical issues related to information systems will be covered. In addition to concepts and theories, students will develop an Access database project to enhance their understanding of information systems in general and get familiar with database technology in particular.

Current technologies to design and construct an Internet-based e-business system as well as the management of e-business in modern organizations. Students learn to build a fully functional e-business application, such as traditional transaction-based systems and new applications for advertising, ordering, payment, customer relationship management and communication, etc. Work includes many small projects and a semester project.

To study a variety of management issues related to enterprise systems (ES). ES is the central nervous system in any modern organization. This course will cover key ES management issues based upon both classic and most recent case/research studies. Topics include the fit between enterprise systems and organizations, knowledge transfer between consultants and organizations, performance evaluation of enterprise systems, and enterprise system selection and implementation issues, etc. A real-world enterprise system (a proprietary system or an open source system) will be used to help students obtain hands-on experiences and facilitate the learning process by linking theory with practice.
