Information is going everywhere. It is bleeding out of the Internet and out of personal
computers, and it is being embedded into the real world. Mobile devices, networked
resources, and real-time systems are making our interactions with information constant and
ubiquitous. Information is becoming pervasive, and products and services are becoming
parts of larger systems, many of these emergent, complex information-based ecosystems
where participants are co-producers and where relationships between elements, channels
and touchpoints are messy and non-linear. Still, by and large, within the area of informatics
and information systems we teach management and design as if they were linear. Could we
try something different? How would that work and what results could it produce in terms
of both learning outcomes and student satisfaction?
This paper details the approach we followed and the early results we achieved in
introducing business and informatics students to entrepreneurship and innovation through
a holistic approach in the 2-year Master in IT, Management and Innovation at Jönköping
International Business School (JIBS), in Jönköping, Sweden
