BST 120 - Business and Technology: Perfect Together?

Description
This course relies heavily on a foundation of "experiential learning." The lecture portion of the class focuses on how technology is integrated into business solutions, with review and discussion of case studies using current topics like the healthcare.gov website design and development problems, the state-of-the-art logistics considerations for Amazon.com, and the technology considerations for broadcasting a Super Bowl at Met-Life Stadium in New Jersey. The concepts covered during these lectures are then integrated into the project work that teams of students will complete as they review specific areas of business on Drew's campus, and report back to the class on everything from how hardware/software solutions were defined, developed, purchased, implemented, supported and even retired. The project teams will be required to meet with their Drew "business" contacts at least three times during the semester, as they develop two short presentations to introduce their area of study to the rest of the class and then pull together their final presentation. The final presentations are presented to the class, as well as a panel of guest speakers who have also contributed to the course by discussing their own business and technology experiences throughout the semester. (Some of the guest speakers are also Drew alumni, while others are contacts that the instructor will invite to the class when their area of expertise matches the topics currently being discussed in class.)
