MIS 2901 – Honors Information Systems in Organizations
As an introductory course for management information systems (MIS), this course explains the applications of MIS in business today, such as customer relationship management systems, enterprise systems, cloud computing, artificial intelligence, etc. Students learn various tools and techniques in identifying, analyzing, and evaluating business processes, which are the foundation of MIS. These tools and techniques include Google Analytics, SalesForce, Visio, swimlane diagram, and ERD.
In this class, I created a mini case that consists of a narrative explaining a business process, a swim line diagram illustrating the step-by-step process, and an entity relationship diagram illustrating the data associated with the process. Out of all of the student submissions, my mini case was selected to be the exam prep material for all sections of MIS 2101 and MIS 2901 in Spring 2017 through Spring 2018.
Here is my mini case that has been modified by the Diamond Peer Teacher for the purpose of the exam prep.
