Technology has a profound impact on business — shaping the way it is conducted, how products and services are developed and offered, and how people interact with organizations. Our faculty, alumni, and centers and institutes are at the forefront of the intersection of business and technology, and are leading change through both research and practice. Business+Tech builds on these efforts, equipping students with a technology foundation they can use to positively impact business and society.
