Information Systems

Information systems are critical for business firms to survive and prosper in today’s global marketplace. Research conducted by faculty in the IS area at DeGroote helps companies of all sizes understand how to best use information systems including eBusiness and mobile business to find new markets, improve market share, reduce costs and satisfy the requirements of their customers and business partners.

Technology Adoption, Human Computer Interaction, Website design, eHealth, eGovernment, Knowledge Management, Information Security & Privacy, Digital Storytelling, Decision Support Systems, and eHealth are some of the topics currently under investigation by IS researchers at DeGroote. The McMaster eBusiness Research Centre (MeRC) and the Wayne C. Fox Chair in Business Innovation, both housed in the IS Area, enhance the research of the faculty and make important contributions to enhancing interdisciplinary research in the above area.

Courses offered by the IS area are focused on equipping students with a solid understanding of the gamut of information systems that exist in today’s business environment and the critical role they play in achieving a sustained competitive advantage for any organization.
