LUISS

Course outlook

In the Internet era, where information can be exchanged via multiple bearers and applications, Information Systems (IS) are at the heart of almost every business interaction, process and decision. Hence, managers and entrepreneurs underestimating the IS value within the organizational system, risk to abdicate participation or definitively miss important decisions.
Based on these considerations, a basic knowledge of computer systems represents a fundamental building block for students in economics and business: all of them will interact daily with enterprise IS/Information Technologies (IT), some will even manage IS departments or IT companies, facing the complexity of decisions in this area.
For these reasons, the course is focused on the fundamental topics of the Information Systems, as Computer systems, Computing Components and Architecture, Operating Systems, Communications and Networks, Databases, and Information security, including Appendices needed to refine basic pillars of the course.

Honor Code
The main kinds of academic dishonesty are cheating and plagiarism.

    Cheating is the act of obtaining or attempting to obtain credit for academic work through the use of deceptive or fraudulent means (e.g., copying from someone else’s test, using or consulting, during an examination, any sources, consulting with others, use of materials, e.g. electronic devices, textbooks etc, not authorized by the instructor).
    Plagiarism is representing the work of someone else as your own and submitting it for any purpose (e.g., submitting text retrieved as-is from Internet, incorporating the ideas, sentences, paragraphs, or parts of another author’s writings, without giving appropriate credit, and representing the product as your own ).

It shall be a violation of the Honor Code to engage in any of the following:
– to use materials or to consult with any other person:

    (a) in an exam, except as expressly authorized by the instructor;
    (b) in an assigned project or class Lab preparation, or other assignment, in any manner
    expressly forbidden by an instructor.

– To submit as one’s own work the work of another
– To misappropriate another student’s, the University’s, or any faculty member’s notes, papers, books, tapes or other materials.

In lab sessions, you are invited to keep these discussions at the strategic level as far as possible.
If you reveal the key idea of a problem to another student, you are denying that person the opportunity to have the solving experience, which is where the greatest learning takes place.
