In the current IT environment, software development projects are increasingly treated as business propositions in which the product under development must deliver real and measurable value to the organization. As such, Software Engineers often need increasingly sophisticated knowledge of the business environment in order to advance in their careers beyond the purely technical track. This concentration will bridge the areas of software engineering and business, by equipping students to understand the financial, marketing, management, and entrepreneurial context in which most software development projects are executed.
The concentration will include course offerings from both CDM and Kellstadt Graduate School of Business. It offers the Software Engineering students the opportunities of immersing themselves in a classroom setting in which the focus is purely business oriented, as opposed to technology oriented. This concentration aims to prepare Software Engineering students for career paths in software technology focused entrepreneurship or senior technology leadership positions (CIO's, CTO's) in businesses.
