General Information

  • Lecture: Mondays, 11:30 - 13:00,  room 36/0231
  • Tutorial: Tuesdays, room 33/1201
    • Group 1: 11:30 - 12:15
    • Group 2: 12:20 - 13:05
    • Group 3: 14:00 - 14:45
    • Note 1: The tutorials are 45 minutes each. The directory of courses lists them as 90 minutes, though.
    • Note 2: The other tutorials on Thursdays have been cancelled, because all students can be accommodated with the remaining slots.
  • Last lecture: 19.12.2011, 036/0221 ("Physikhörsaal"), 15:45 !!!!!!!

Exam

  • Part (40 points) of the joint exam "Einführung Wirtschaftswissenschaften" (24429), 120 minutes
  • The date for the exam will be determined by the Office of Academic Affairs (Prüfungsamt).

As for relevant contents: Relevant are all materials covered in class or in the reading assignment. In particular, prepare for the following topics:

1. All questions from the tutorial.

2. Programming in Python: Python will be a substantial part of the exam. We will present complete programs or code snippets, and you will have to decide what will happen when you start the respective program. Options may include

a) various alternative screen outputs,

b) the option "Something else, but not an error" and

c) the option "An error message".

So you will need to understand exactly what the respective program is doing. We will not go beyond the language subset that was covered in class, but we expect that you really understand this subset. Guessing will not help in this part of the exam!

EXAM RESULTS

Learning Goals

This class will explain the use of computer technology for business purposes. Students will learn how IT and the organizational perspective on enterprises mutually influence each other, and how this can be exploited for more efficient business operations. Also, the foundations of computer hardware, software engineering, and typical business applications will be introduced. Eventually, students will learn to use computer technology effectively and efficiently for business purposes. They will understand the transformation of the business world currently in progress and be well prepared for a career in today's dynamic and global economy.

Programming in Python (We use Python 2.x, instead of 3.x!)

Running Python on Windows

We propose the following approach to run Python on windows:

  • Download & install Python 2.6
  • run Python\Lib\idlelib\idle.bat
  • (Python-Console loads with Menu Bar)
  • File => New Window
  • put your Python Code in the new windows
  • press F5 (= Menü "Run" => "Run Module")
  • provide a name to save the file
  • your script run in the first windows (Console)

If that fails, you can use IDLE on WTS

Windows-Terminal-Server of UniBW: https://wts.unibw.de/ => IDLE (Python GUI)
