Leadership & MIS (Functional Elective) (2 credits)

The internet and other information technologies have reshaped organizations. Companies are increasingly forced to deal with digital/information strategies, and understanding how to handle those strategies is important for managers. The purpose of this course is to explore some of the strategies in detail. The focus of the course is to develop – through cases, lectures, discussions, and examples – insights into when and how the information and the digital strategies can be used to create and enhance an organization’s competitive advantage.

Krannert Professor of Management Karthik Kannan provides an introduction to this course.
