This course will focus on what MIS are, how they influence your current or prospective jobs, why they impose specific – and sometimes seemingly absurd – operational procedures, and how to use this knowledge to your advantage in your professional life. Grasping the key concepts in MIS does not need to be daunting. We will use real world examples to illustrate key concepts, and strive to strike a proper balance between clarity / amenity and conceptual soundness.
After Successful Completion of this course, learners will be able to:
● Understand Management Information Systems (MIS) and their role in today’s organizations
● Identify how MIS shapes and controls current (or prospective) jobs and how to use this insight to improve your own job performance and satisfaction and and enhance your career prospects
● Become familiar with the major trends in MIS and MIS infrastructures (Cloud, Big Data, ERPs, outsourcing) and how these evolutions will affect workplaces and business strategies
● Bridge the MIS-related second “digital gap” that exists, after basic computer literacy, in most professional jobs
