The Business and Technology (B&T) major exposes students to all the major business disciplines through the strong technology-focused lens for which Stevens is known. Students select a business concentration in one of five areas — finance, marketing, information systems, economics or international business. Technology training is reinforced through a separate concentration that trains students in highly specialized areas using curriculum outside the business school in a number of fields from engineering and science to humanities. Examples the technology concentrations include Computer Science, Biotechnology, Green Technology and History of Technology.
“A lot of my classes have tied into the topics I make videos about. Courses in economics and social media marketing have been eye-opening, in terms of looking at companies and their behavior.”
Marques Brownlee, Business & Technology Class of 2015 Founder, MKBHD
“The fact that the Howe School is so centered around technology really helped grow my interest in e-commerce. Being surrounded by technology all the time made the transition to an online business so much easier — you get so accustomed to the technology mindset.”
Gino Mazzarella, Business & Technology Class of 2014 Founder, Awesome Cables
