DECISION 617 - Information Management
Information Management introduces students to a set of powerful business software tools they can use to turn data into information and present that information creatively and effectively. Students learn techniques for organizing and managing data using advanced features of Microsoft Excel spreadsheet software and Microsoft Access relational database software. Through a series of practical projects students learn first-hand how these tools can be used to manage data insightfully and effectively in a rapidly changing business environment.
The course this year will focus on the Office 2007 versions of Excel and Access. There are no prerequisites for this course other than an intermediate level of skill with spreadsheet software. A student's grade is based on his or her performance on a set of assignments and quizzes. There is no mid-term or final exam in this course. Classroom attendance is required for the first class meeting and optional for all the following meetings.
