Infusing Information Technology into the Core Business Curriculum: A Change Management Project
Many modern businesses have implemented information technology in a seamless inter-functional manner based on integrated databases. However, few business schools have followed suit by integrating information technology seamlessly into core curricula. Proprietary enterprise resource planning software packages show promise but have not been adopted in a widespread manner by academic departments for various reasons. Consequently, large numbers of business students are not as prepared for the work environment as they could be. This case study describes the initial processes to integrate information technology intensively into a university's core business curriculum.
