The ITDS department welcomes industry-academic partnerships and the opportunity to engage with business leaders. We believe the opportunities that arise from these relationships create a rich learning environment for our students and benefit businesses by connecting them with world-class researchers in information systems and business analytics. There are a variety of ways in which your organization can engage with our students and our faculty.
