Computers and Business
posted by: mcrocker
When I visited Penn High School on Thursday, one of the students approached me after class to talk about my research into nanomagnets for computing.
The thing he said that interested me the most, however, was that he was looking to study Computers and Business at IUSB. A lot of people have told me that getting CS and Business people to work together is a collaboration that should happen more often. My father is a Chemical Engineer, and after entering the workforce he began to wish he had more business/management skills. There are entrepreneurial efforts at a lot of schools, including Notre Dame. The big startup success stories often involve an unlikely partnership between a technology guy and a business/marketing guy.
I wonder if there is a way to take advantage of such a combination when doing STEM outreach…
