MGT 463 MANAGING TECHNOLOGY AS A STRATEGIC RESOURCE

Building on students' knowledge of the role of information technology in modern business, this course will explore the management of technology as a strategic resource. In the 21st century, managers must be able to identify business trends, scan the horizon for new technologies, and analyze the implications of that technology - positive and negative - on the organization. As a result, to be effective managers must be able to not only select and employ the most effective technology solutions to increase organizational efficiency and effectiveness but also to create a culture of innovation to foster intrapreneurship within the organization. Students will become conversant in the language of business technology and demonstrate their ability to analyze and develop strategies for business success through the application of emerging technologies.
