    This unit emphasizes the development of a business informatics case study by introducing students to the world of information systems research. It will enable students to acquire in-depth knowledge, skills and experience necessary in studying cases involving business information systems. This unit is intended to inspire, excite and prepare students to draw together research and practical issues, including in various application areas, and will provide them with an opportunity to apply their knowledge and skills gained in other units throughout their degree programme to report on a business informatics case study. Students will have an opportunity to demonstrate their understanding of research and professional practice through presentation and reporting of one or more cases of their choice.
    This unit may be cotaught with 7155 Business Informatics Case Studies.
