CMIS 1001 - Introduction to Information Systems♦


(5 cr.) The definition of information systems (IS) is broad and can encompass a large number of components. The most important aspect, however, is that IS are vital to the daily function of nearly all individuals and organizations. In this course, students have the opportunity to gain an appreciation of the role that information systems play in their lives as well as in different types of organizations and societies. Students obtain a broad overview of the field of information systems through the examination and discussion of technology, practical applications, and related career issues. They also use case studies that represent recent situations in actual organizations to gain real-world knowledge of how a business manages its data in conjunction with business processes to create an information system.
