Course Description

Generally, information and communication technologies (ICT) are approached as „black boxes”
inside of which is not really accessible for other business areas. This is the reason why the main
objective of this course is to familiarize students with what is happening inside the “black box” and
show how ICT is managed in businesses. We put a strong emphasis on demonstrating how
companies increase their competitiveness with ICT solutions and how they can improve efficiency
in their business functions. We introduce contemporary technology innovations and those
mechanisms which drive new business models, organizational change, and the transformation of
managerial decisions.
During the course, on the one hand, the conceptual foundations of information management are
discussed. On the other several cases, examples and illustrations are presented how digital
transformation works in practice. Students are enabled by several assignments to indulge in their
own concrete cases, both to study digital transformation and to design new business models or
strategies.
