BUS-X 201 consists of two components: alab and a lecture. The lecture provides an introduction to a range of technologies currently deployed in organizations including a broad understanding of how technologies are deployed, their impact and potential, their strategic importance, and their impact on organizations and on society. The labs focus on technologies that transform data into usable information to enhance decision making. They rely heavily upon Microsoft Excel and, to a lesser extent, Microsoft Access to develop sophisticated data analysis and modeling tools.
