MIST 2090 Intro to Information Systems in Business

This class covers how the business world has shifted due to technology. This class explores everything from Excel basics to Tableau. It shows students how the management industry is not the same as it used to be and where it is going. 

  • Throughout this course, we read Machine, Crowd, Platform explaining the complete overhaul in management techniques in the last 10 years. 

“A clear and crisply written account of machine intelligence, big data and the sharing economy. But McAfee and Brynjolfsson also wisely acknowledge the limitations of their futurology and avoid over-simplification.”

  • In addition, we learned how to create a Business Model Canvas and how it is applied in the real world. Our group used this model to create a company that let college students rent cars for a semester-long period. We were able to see what it would take logistically to organize and manage a system like that.

  • We were able to use Tableau, a graphic and data organization platform. We became comfortable with the format and even got to create graphs based on large quantities of data.
