This is a 3 credit graduate level course in information systems in the William F. Harrah College of Hotel Administration at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. 

The objective of this course is to examine issues concerning information technology as they relate to the many fields within the hospitality industry.  This course will take the more standard issues of systems, networking, databases, telecommunications, the internet, and e-commerce, and present materials about them in a general context and then relate these issues to lodging, restaurant, convention, meeting planning, club, gaming, and other hospitality related environments.
