To build this enterprise, you need not only technology but models of deployment of technology, management talent, financial resources, policies and educational programs that supply the right talent to create the human infrastructure to manage all aspects of this enterprise.

For students interested in a research-focused PhD program that is centered on systems and models, this MS program will provide undergraduate and graduate students coursework in economics, statistics, organizational behavior, finance and technology management in preparation for PhD coursework.
