Information in Society, Organizations, and Cultures


Information is the foundation upon which the modern world is built; information and the systems to deliver that information are the basis of communication technology, social interactions, economic growth, scientific/academic research, business, art, and music.  In this course, students will learn about the fundamentals of information – how it is created, how it is managed, and how it is used. Students will gain an understanding of basic information theory and how that theory can be applied to different levels: the individual, and organization, cultures, and society.

Offered in fall.


This is the required first course for all MSIM students.
