Minor in ITIE

The Information Technology Innovation and Entrepreneurship (ITIE) minor integrates the enabling role of IT with the drive of entrepreneurial thinking. The minor includes courses in Entrepreneurship, Management Information Systems (MIS), and other related areas. The minor is appropriate for all majors and particularly relevant for students in Marketing, Finance, Human Resources, Management, and MIS. ITIE minors can drive new IT enabled innovative projects in existing firms and create technology enabled start-ups.

The minor is a joint venture between the MIS department and the Strategic Management department.

Kae RobbenIn today’s environment, employers and employees must come up with innovative ideas to benefit the business. The ability to think creatively adds value to any company. I chose the ITIE minor to learn how to analyze situations in non-traditional ways, and it has allowed me to come up with solutions I would have never thought of before.

John CarsiaI selected ITIE as a minor because I feel IT skills are essential for aspiring entrepreneurs. Knowing how to leverage technology today can help you improve efficiency throughout every aspect of your business and separate you from competitors.
