BUSN 3440 Management of New and Emerging Technologies

3 hours; 3 credits

The focus of this course is on the management of work units charged with technical renewal or new applications of technology. The practical problems of people in industry, involving interpersonal relations, groups, leadership, and organizational change, will be viewed in light of the overall strategy of the firm. Issues will range from managing project groups in traditional pyramid organizations, as well as in the newer matrix organizations, to managing the transfer of technology on an international basis. This course will use the case study approach predominantly, but also will include small group student projects. (This course is the same as Computer and Information Science 1595.) (Not open to students who have completed Economics 50.8.)

Prerequisite: Business 3200 [50.1].
