2016 Seminar Course Invite You!


The objective MIS Seminar Course is to familiarize you with contemporary challenges in information systems management. A diverse group of practitioners and experts from industry and academia will present their own views of issues and problems.
All of you are expected to listen attentively, think critically, and pose constructive questions about the presentations.

You are expected to attend all the sessions, and to prepare a critical summary of each lecture, using the form provided the instructor. No more than one absence will be allowed. The summaries of lecture are to be handed in before the subsequent lecture. In addition, there is a project requirement: you are expected to choose a topic related to a class presentation, prepare a research paper of at least ten pages on that topic, and make a brief report to the class. The paper is to include a survey of literature and, if appropriate, a discussion of interview findings. This project assignment will be discussed in more detail in the first class session.
