Information Technology (IT) touches nearly every aspect of our lives and is a primary driver of business today

High school students take part in a College of Business summer program.

To protect the health and safety of students, we have made the decision to cancel the 2020 IT in Business program. We are committing our efforts toward next summer's program and we look forward to connecting with students then!
