Section Information for Spring 2023

The ever-shifting global environment holds significant implications for the management and use of information technology (IT). The emergence of new IT in areas such as wearable computers, RFID, and customer relationship management presents new and exciting opportunities for doing business on a global scale. IT touches every aspect of our lives, often in unimaginable ways; the existence of cybercrime shows that new technologies create new threats as well as offering significant benefits. This is the information age where the right information delivered to the right place at the right time can make the difference between success and failure. IT has reshaped entire sectors of the economy such as travel, leisure, retail, healthcare, and financial services. As future business leaders, our goal is to become informed consumers and users of IT.
