Students will also be able to analyze the impacts of information systems on processes, organizations, and society. Based on these foundations, they will learn how to model and develop new IT products, projects, business models, and processes using different techniques. This will allow students to plan, evaluate, and leverage information systems not only in existing firms but also for entrepreneurial endeavors.
