This case-oriented course is designed to familiarize students with existing and emerging technologies and their business applications. It also covers issues, problems, and opportunities that information systems (IS) executives and general managers face when managing IS resources in their organizations. Includes lectures, case analyses, discussions and possible presentations. Case discussions cover real situations and deal with the operational and strategic decisions that every IS manager has to make in managing and exploiting the available information technology.

This course seeks to introduce students to business in Spain. In order to do so, Spain’s primary, secondary, and tertiary productive sectors will be surveyed and a case study of a leading Spanish business organization within each sector will be presented. In Part I of the course, students will become acquainted with the most salient characteristics and recent developments in the Spanish political and economic systems while briefly studying recent political and economic developments in the European Union conditioning the business environment in Spain. In Part II, students will focus their attention on the general characteristics of Spain’s main productive sectors and a selected case study for each: Agriculture, Construction and Engineering and Manufacturing.

Core topics that will be examined in the course will be: the Spanish political system, contemporary Spanish political & economic developments.
