The purpose of this course is to give students some basic knowledge of the structure and functioning of a business and its information flow, with an emphasis on e-commerce. Students will learn the main parts of a company, what they do, and what kinds of information they handle and require. The course will follow these divisions through a couple of extended examples, such as a small service company versus a large goods-producing company. The course will also include discussion of public organizations, and discussion of legal and ethical issues specific to computer work.
