Computer terminals in business are becoming increasingly popular. By calling pre stored programs from the computer memory and feeding necessary data from a terminal device in their offices, modern executives have been able to make better use of quantitative techniques in the decision-making process. The desk-like terminals provide executives direct access to information fields of their companies and to computerized analysis of current operations. Gupta pointed out that the broad applications of terminal processing has allowed the executive greater control without stretching his span of management. If students in business courses are pre-exposed to this type of computer processing, it will undoubtedly add enrichment to their future careers in the world of business.
