MIS 250 introduces students to the use of information technologies for business problem solving and decision-making. Explores the application of spreadsheet engineering concepts and principles of data management, business modeling, and reporting to business problems. Concepts are contextualized in a broader discussion of information systems management including data security, ethical issues, social media, distributed services, and emerging trends. This course intends to provide a well-rounded level of competency in the use of spreadsheet software as a tool while exploring problem decomposition and solution planning and construction. This is a required course for all majors in the Smeal College of Business.
Rhetoric and Composition (ENGL 15) an intensive, rhetorically based experience in reading and writing that will prepare you both to understand the communications that surround you and to succeed in your own communication efforts. Thus, in this course, we will focus specifically on analyzing verbal and visual texts (our reading) as well as on producing such texts (our writing), always in terms of rhetorical principles. ENGL 15 fulfills 3 credits of the writing and speaking requirement for general education.
This pride is reserved for students enrolled in the Smeal College of Business and the Division of Undergraduate Studies.
