INSY-732 Assessment and Optimization of Technology

Students in this course will optimize organizational processes using data analysis, assess the potential of various software to enhance organizational performance, and maximize the return on organizational technology investments. Students will evaluate applications for the potential to improve collaboration, sharing, and lowering cost. Students will manage application development to lower cost, improve quality, and customer satisfaction. Students will develop application policies and procedures consistent with the Virtuous Business Model.


INSY-733 Strategic Information Systems Management

This course focuses on the information technology leader's collaborative roles working with an organization's non-IT senior leadership, including aligning business strategy with IT strategy and evaluating evolving theories and practices that inform decisions related to the life cycle of information systems.

Students will integrate the Virtuous Business Model into strategic information systems decision-making.


INSY-790 Applied Doctoral Program Evaluation and Assessment - Information Systems

This is the culminating course of the DBA program in which students will defend their doctoral project. Students in this course will integrate forward-thinking virtuous leadership into global team-based business practice, create ethical change management solutions and strategies for complex business problems, and design solutions to management problems using new applications of theory or changes in present practices. Students will synthesize advanced research in education, consulting, or business leadership into their doctoral practice in order to create new information systems knowledge for application in the global workplace. Students will integrate a virtuous worldview into both their personal and professional lives. Prerequisite: Completion of all other required courses with the exception of BADM-785


INSY-791 Scholar-Practitioner Seminar: Information Systems

In this course, students further develop and refine their voices as scholar practitioners through active exchange within communities of practice and scholarship. Students will draw on critical and creative mastery of a broad range of concepts, theories, and practices, as well as be aware of the assumptions underlying them from perspectives which go beyond individual disciplines and contexts. Grounded in theory and research, informed by experiential knowledge, motivated by personal values, and through the lens of a virtuous worldview, students will synthesize new business administration knowledge and skills for application in the global workplace. These reflect solutions to real-world information systems problems using new applications of theory or changes in present practice. Students will develop skills to effectively communicate their findings in a variety of formats including peer-reviewed written or oral venues. Prerequisite: Completion of all other required courses with the exception of BADM-785 and BADM-792.
