The Teaching of Informatics for Business Students
Sora, Sebastian A.
College Teaching Methods & Styles Journal, v4 n1 p107-110 2008
Informatics is a branch of computer science that concerns itself, in actuality, with the use of information systems. The objective of this paper is to focus on the business curriculum for graduate students and their gaining proficiency in informatics so that they can understand the concept of information, the access of information, the use of information, and the generation of information which enables a secure knowledge of what is needed to make good business decisions within a frame work of valid data and data requirements. What is to be noted in the author's review of course structures is that in all cases, educators have the implementation of the paradigm of information systems on top of the training/education in normal business courses. The author asserts that the thinking process for managers would be different if the field of informatics for business students was an integrated whole with all the business courses containing the informatics areas associated with that course.
