Many university or college business programs offer majors or concentrations of small business management, but few of them offer a course of information technology (IT) for small business, despite the fact that IT plays an important role in the management of innovative small businesses. While introductory information systems (IS) courses emphasize the general issues of IT/IS, IT solution services specifically applicable to small business are virtually missing in the curriculum of small business management. This paper applies the pedagogical design methodology, discusses advanced IT topics specifically for small business, provides a pedagogical outline of a new course of IT for small business, and presents an approach to delivering the course. The authors’ preliminary experience indicates the usefulness of the new course for business majors.
