Description: This course examines the use of innovative technology in business settings as well as the strategic importance of globalization afforded by technology. Students will explore historical and recent innovations and change theories to support innovation and technical change, global technologies and their impact on business and society, and how management can leverage technology, globalization, and change as elements key to maintaining and advancing strategic organizational initiatives. A foundational understanding of technological innovation and globalization is important to students' learning as the concepts are pervasive, impact business operations both locally and globally, and apply to the remaining concepts explored this program. Students will develop skills and apply concepts encountered in this course throughout the remainder of their program as they engage in research, essay writing, and project development. Students will build upon this and other core courses during the remainder of their program by applying their knowledge and skills to a targeted area of study or emphasis within the IT domain/MCIT program. Letter grade only.
