Fields of practice: Information Systems program



Through an introduction to complex systems and their characteristics, this subject allows the students to develop their knowledge and skills to deal with the complex problems they will encounter in practice. Students will learn how to recognize and analyse complex systems and to cope with this complexity. They will learn to assess the impacts of their interventions in such systems by considering the cultural, social, economic, institutional and technical aspects of these interventions. Students will work collaboratively on aspects of real systems to come to grips with the complexity of such systems and its implication to systems development and management, while getting an appreciation of the role that IS plays in this.
