This paper presents a teaching methodology developed to deliver fundamental principles of management information systems (MIS). The methodology is used in the MIS core course taught in an undergraduate school of business. It is a LOTUS 1-2-3 project consisting of two independent but related components: (1) a set of exercises which develop students’ computing abilities and spreadsheet knowledge and (2) a set of instructions for building a partial accounting information system. Student work through the exercises and then build the accounting system. The excises and instructions for building the accounting system are described first. Then the strengths of the methodology are discussed.
