A fresh, contemporary, active introduction to information systems

Introduction to Information Systems provides invaluable help for learning the knowledge and skills related to information systems. In it, students see clearly what information systems are all about and why they are so fundamental to business and society.

¿

MyMISLab for Introduction to Information Systems creates learning experiences that are truly personalized and continuously adaptive. MyMISLab reacts to how students are actually performing, offering data-driven guidance that helps them better absorb course material and understand difficult concepts—resulting in better performance in the course

Packed with revelations about business strategies, technology trends and innovations–plus tips to help students work smarter, and more efficiently— Introduction to Information Systems provides a better teaching and learning experience—for you and your students. Here’s how:

  • Personalize learning through the interactive, online role-playing simulations in MyMISLabTM: Students get opportunities to apply their knowledge and actually experience what each chapter is about, rather than simply memorizing key terms and concepts.
  • A focus on reaching all students, recognizing changing student roles, and showing clearly where the knowledge of information systems skills can take them.
  • Helping students see beyond today’s classrooms and into today’s varied world.
  • End-of-book comprehensive case studies show students the concepts in action.
