Digital Transformation


Units: 6


This course serves as a capstone course integrating technological and managerial aspects of information technology. We will take the culmination of your previous learning of technological and managerial subjects and apply it to real-world scenarios. Each section will consider the information and communication technologies that play multiple roles within an organizational context through two perspectives:

  • From a technological perspective, these define the information and communication infrastructures of the firm and they enable new ways to digitize business processes.
  • From a managerial perspective, these facilitate new coordination and communication within and across entities, enable new organizational forms, change the information environment underlying the business, and permit new incentive structures.

Learning Outcomes

Analyze and interpret methods of productivity growth through modern interpretations of digitized input and output drivers.
