EBZ602 MIS Research Methodology

This course introduces students to effective research methodology tools based on IT theories. Students should be able to expand their research ability through extensive practices in research model development and statistical analysis. The statistical tools such as SPSS, SAS, LISREL, etc. will be tested by students who will be trained to write a proper research paper by the end of the course. Students are required to submit a final paper.

EBZ603 Systems Planning and Analysis

This course explores principles, techniques, and problems associated with development, operation, and evaluation of computer-based information systems. Students will learn how to analyze organization information requirements; to develop specifications for information systems; and to understand implementation issues. Object-oriented systems analysis and design approach will be the main focus. By the end of the course, students should be able to develop a UML (uniform modeling language) -based system.

EBZ610 Expert Systems Applications

This course introduces students to issues and techniques employed in expert systems. Topics include a consideration of successful existing systems, knowledge representation, inference engine, expert system building tools and environments, knowledge acquisition, and uses of expert systems technology. Students will implement expert systems using an expert system shell. Additional topics include association rule, cluster analysis, and decision tree induction.
Prerequisite: Management Information Systems

EBZ611 Artificial Intelligence Applications

This course teaches some of artificial intelligence techniques used in data mining. Such techniques are ANN (artificial neural networks), CBR (case based reasoning), and genetic algorithms. Students will have an opportunity to develop ANN models using a PC-based ANN tool; to present current research literatures on these techniques, and to implement a CBR system in a term project.
Prerequisite: Expert Systems Applications

EBZ612 Data Mining

Due to advances in technology and the availability of low-cost storage devices, data in different domains has been accumulating at an impressively high rate in recent years, leading to the introduction of very large databases. Data mining and knowledge discovery have become an active area of research to exploit information from these databases. The course provides an overview of leading data mining methods, modeling development, and their application to real-world problems. Several case studies in a wide spectrum of applications, especially in business, are examined.
Prerequisite: Artificial Intelligence Applications

EBZ613 Customer Relationship Management

Business has to focus on customers’ demand in order to be successful. CRM (customer relationship management) has three types: operational CRM, analytical CRM, and collaborative CRM. This course concentrates on analytical CRM for which different techniques, implementation methods, and cases are studied.
Prerequisite: Data Mining

EBZ614 Web-based Intelligent Information Systems

A variety of web-based intelligent information systems’ tools is explored. As management of an organization gets more complex in this digital information age, this kind of system is needed to solve complicated problems. Research on techniques involving DSS (decision support system), AI (artificial intelligence), and SA (software agent) is actively pursued. Semantic web is a web of data that can be processed by machines without the help of humans. This course predominantly addresses issues on semantic web: RDF, OWL, semantic social networking, semantic web portal, semantic web mining, ontology mapping.

EBZ615 Research in Simulation

Students will analyze a system structure; will design a new system; will construct a system model; and finally will run a simulation on the system. Simulation is one of popular analytic method of operating research method. This course covers system modeling and theories, simulation methodology, simulation language, and an application to economic and management systems.

EBZ620 Electronic Commerce

The objectives of the course are to introduce the concept of electronic commerce, and to understand how electronic commerce is affecting business enterprises. Numerous technologies are involved in electronic commerce, including databases, Internet servers, security tools, digital currency, user interfaces, and distribution architectures. These technologies allow businesses to overcome the barriers of geographic boundaries to market, and to produce and deliver products and services electronically. This course will provide students with an understanding of the technologies, business opportunities, and management issues involving electronic commerce.

EBZ621 Advanced Topics in Data Base

This is an advanced course in DBMS (database management systems). Distributed database, object-oriented database, intelligence database, web database, etc. are introduced and reviewed in detail. Students will be provided with hands-on experience of a DBMS application, and are required to design and implement a data base systems project.

EBZ622 Innovation Theory

IT is continuously developing at fast rate forcing organizations to adapt rapidly to changing environment. Innovation is one critical element in maintaining success for any organizations. This course discusses techniques and theories on management innovation in reference to IT, and students are encouraged to think creatively about an application of IT to management innovation.

EBZ623 Business Data Communication

This course deals with basic terminology, concepts and technologies involved in business data communication. Topics include a detailed description of physical interfaces, modulation and multiplexing methods, data transmission characteristics, carrier systems, the OSI (open systems interconnection) model, communication protocols, LAN (local area network), VAN (value-added network), ISDN (integrated services digital network) and client/server architecture.

EBZ624 ERP Consulting

Global companies are in needs of a tool to integrate all of the information generated from both internal and external functional entities. The concept, purpose and implementation of ERP (enterprise resource planning) are introduced and discussed in detail along with BPR (business process reengineering) process. Students will learn about theories of ERP and conduct practice simulation on SAP package.

EBZ 625 e-Business Strategies

E-business’s operation is based on IT and internet, thus it requires different management and strategic criteria than regular businesses. This course discusses planning, execution and evaluation aspects of e-business by first learning about the meaning and role of e-business strategy and methodology, and then reviewing domestic and international related cases. Recently published papers will be used to learn and analyze about most updated strategies.

EBZ626 MIS Auditing

MIS is used widely within an organization from resource planning to strategic decision making, and as a consequence, many risk factors are arisen. This course offers different ways of implementing security and auditing measures and their methodologies to efficiently and competently protect and maintain MIS within an organization.
