This Engineering Leadership course examines global and information aspects of technology- and information-based companies.
Information is an essential commodity in today’s world. This includes the flow of information in every aspect of our society, from local governments to international businesses. Information is the fabric that holds together various entities from small businesses to giant corporations, from local governments to national governments, from elementary schools to institutes of higher education. The use of this information is not limited regionally, and the need for information is not restricted to specific industries. It is as relevant to financial institutions as to computer manufacturers, to insurance companies as to automobile manufacturers, and to the entertainment industry as to the service sectors of our society. Simply utilizing this information is not enough; the ethical and effective use of the information is the key to organizational success. The engineering and conscientious management of information can mean the difference between efficiency or waste, profit or loss. This course examines global and information aspects of technology- and information-based companies.
