“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 degree programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels in such in-demand fields as Business Intelligence & Analytics, Information Systems, Quantitative Finance, Marketing, and Business & Technology, as well as a robust MBA program and a complement of 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.
By leveraging Stevens’ 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, and prepares future business leaders to achieve, lead and succeed in today's changing technological environments.
The interdisciplinary educational approach and research-based teaching of the Howe School not only enables teaching in the functional areas of business, but also exposes students to new and emerging domains — issues like Big Data analytics, enterprise project management, quantitative finance, social network marketing, management of innovation and change, technology entrepreneurship and commercialization, network and data analysis, advanced technologies in business, and managing the extended value chain.
The school’s location in Hoboken, NJ, puts it a short subway ride away from New York City, the epicenter of the business world. Our proximity to Manhattan 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. Many of these companies recruit on campus and hire our students for internships or full-time employment.
