B.S Information Technology Entrepreneurship

The B.S. Information Technology Entrepreneurship program is designed to create a structured and vibrant environment for young, aspiring entrepreneurs who are bold enough to set up their own information technology company. The program has a strong enough information technology base to enable students to appreciate what is possible with current technology and to come up and develop working prototypes of new product ideas. It also has an overlay of business courses that will give students an appreciation of the challenges of business, and an eye to spot market opportunities, so that the products they come up with are not just technically feasible, but economically feasible and commercially viable as well. Integrated into the program is a set of entrepreneurship courses that will guide the students as they turn their business plans into businesses with going concerns.

Who knows, your idea could become the Google or the Facebook success story of your generation!
