A Message From the Deans
College of Business
One of the many things that I love about the Hoeft Technology and Management program is the value and emphasis it places on technology, innovation, and entrepreneurialism—three areas that we value highly in the College of Business. We want for ILLINOIS to be known worldwide as THE place to study—and practice—technology, innovation, and entrepreneurialism, and the T&M program allows students to do just that.
Further, it brings together two colleges—engineering and business—in a spirit of collaboration that benefits all involved. Collaboration produces greater ideas; it strengthens projects; it turns good ideas into great ones; it extends reach and impact; it continually brings improvement and fresh perspectives and better results. Collaboration really is the heartbeat of the working world, and our engineering and business students are better prepared for that world through their collaborations as part of the T&M program.Jeffrey R.
