Howe Advantage

“Business and technology have fused into one system, one conversation, and one strategy, for one world. This is central to understanding the New Future.” [Institute for Global Futures, Top Ten Trends]

The intersection of business and technology has always been at the heart of the Wesley J. Howe School of Technology Management, and today that focus is more relevant than ever.  The Howe School, the business school at Stevens Institute of Technology, offers bachelor of science, master’s, MBA, doctoral degrees, as well as numerous certificates in a variety of business and technology specialties.  Students graduate from Howe prepared to be transformational leaders in high-demand fields where expertise in business, technology and management are crucial to success.

Leveraging Steven Institute of Technology’s strengths in entrepreneurship and technology innovation, the Howe School grounds students in critical thinking and teaches them to perform in highly technological and global environments. The interdisciplinary curriculum stresses teamwork, entrepreneurship, and relevant solutions to real-world problems, while it prepares tomorrow's business leaders to achieve, lead, and succeed in today's changing technological environments.

The School’s location in Hoboken, NJ is a 20 minute commute to New York City, the epicenter of the business world.   Our proximity to NYC creates a natural setting for exploring synergies between business, management and technology. Our students have access to Fortune 500 corporations in the areas of technology, consulting, media, retail and financial services.  

The interdisciplinary educational approach and research-based teaching that is used at the  Howe School not only enables teaching in the functional areas of business, but also exposes students to new and emerging  domains — issues like business intelligence and analytics, enterprise project management, quantitative finance, social networking, management of innovation and change, technology entrepreneurship and commercialization, network and data analysis, advanced technologies in business and managing the extended value chain.
