Business design for IT services

We teach how to "design" a business initiative. Students work in groups on a project of their choice. We develop insights with business and system thinking literature. Concrete fieldwork outside class and substantial readings are necessary.

Enterprise and service-oriented architecture

In this course, we teach how to define the requirements for an IT service that would best serve the needs of an organization. The course is taught using a non-conventional style in which the students learn mostly through the stress of a series of concrete experiences that mimic real-life situation.
