An Innovative Approach to Teaching Decisions Support Systems.
Kittner, Marcy; Van Slyke, Craig
This paper describes the design, implementation, and subsequent redesign of an innovative MBA (Master's of Business Administration) Decision Support Systems course. The curriculum is developed around a collaborative, technology-based approach that emphasizes teamwork and problem solving to teach students the principles and applications of decision support systems. Problems encountered during implementation, adjustments made, lessons learned, and recommendations for educators are included. Benefits for students include: interacting with technology (Internet, GroupSystems, and Lotus Notes); learning current and emerging topics; and enhancing teamwork, collaboration and communications skills. A copy of the syllabus is appended. (Author/AEF)
