In particular, we shall see how some organisations have centred themselves around their information systems and highlight critical issues in the debates regarding the use of information technologies in organisations including the competitive advantage they may provide. The second part of the course provides a view of state-of-the-art enterprise systems applications, and social networking and Web 2.0 tools and discusses how they are integrated into business life and used to improve organisational performance. The third part focuses on green IS/IT and green business practices and sustainability.

I tried looking on the MBS website but I couldn't find a detailed list of the course units. The info I posted is from the central module database for which you need a UoM user account to access so I can't link you to it, unfortunately.
