The use and proliferation of digital technologies have created drastic shifts in the way in which organizations buy and sell goods and services, and integrate their supply chain and delivery systems.
Digital technologies have also resulted in the fundamental transformations in the structure form, and governance of organizations. This course combines theories and frameworks with practical approaches to provide students with the skills required to help companies identify business opportunities, find appropriate information related technologies, and lead adoption efforts to success.
Thus, it is not a technical course; rather, it addresses the question: why and how should these new digital technologies be leveraged to shape and support strategic and entrepreneurial initiatives in the global competitive landscape.
