LEARN TO BECOME A LEADER IN TECHNOLOGY AND INNOVATION
Today’s technology leaders must know how to take advantage of new technologies and ideas, or remain trapped in stagnation. Trained innovative thinkers can bring fresh ideas. The computer science specialization provides you with a broad base of understanding of the foundational technology in information systems, and can help you understand how computers function and communicate from the inside out. This general specialization was created to provide you with a foundation on a wide variety of computing topics, and to prepare you for a range of technology leadership roles. This program is based on progressive learning in context, which means your courses will follow a logical progression, beginning and ending with a strategy course that enables you to apply everything you’ve learned to real world issues and challenges. Today’s competitive global marketplace needs leaders who can use the general, but in-depth, knowledge to lead the innovative integration of computer technologies in global organizations.
