Managing Information Technology in the E-Business Enterprise I (Revision 4)
CMIS 341 is an MIS (management information systems) course, but it differs from a traditional MIS course because it concentrates on managing information systems in e-business enterprises.

- Lesson 1: Foundations of Information Systems in Business

- Lesson 3: Managing Data Resources
- Lesson 4: Telecommunications and Networks
- Lesson 5: Functional and Cross-Functional e-Business Systems
