Dual ITI-MI students will be immersed in classroom and experiential learning opportunities that will teach tech and critical leadership skills, including creative thinking, analytic skills, visualizing information, problem solving, collaboration and team building. The degree will provide each student with the opportunity to conceive of and develop a product that could solve a real-world tech problem, because students will be expected to develop, build and create a product that will be marketable. Another significant feature of the program will be the opportunity to learn from professionals who will be invited to classes to share their experiences. The dual BA + MI degree will prepare students for successful careers in the fields of technology, government, education and healthcare, among others.”
