This course provides a broad overview of the issues managers face in the selection, use, and management of information technology (IT). Increasingly, IT is being used as a tool to implement business strategies and gain competitive advantage, not merely to support business operations. Using a case study approach, topics include information technology and strategy, information technology and organization, and information technology assets management.
The course takes management approach rather than a technical approach to the material presented. As such, it should be of use to students of general management interested in information technology and to students of information technology interested in management.
The course includes linear data structures such as arrays, stacks, queues, linked-lists; nonlinear data structures such as generalized lists, trees, and graphs; operations on these using algorithms such as insertions, deletions, and traversals.
This course allows the student to learn and apply the art and style of procedural programming to solve computational problems adhering to the standards and guidelines of documentation. It includes discussion on
I/O statements, loop and branching instructions, and creating functions and procedures, arrays, structures, pointers, and simple file management.
