Department of Emerging Technology in Business and Design

The Department of Emerging Technology in Business and Design (ETBD) explores how new technology can effect positive change in almost any aspect of society. The program, strongly transdisciplinary, comprises faculty from the worlds of business and design, obviously, but also from data science, engineering, programming, the arts, and the humanities.

The program offers two undergraduate degrees, one in ETBD and one in Games + Simulation. The Master in Entrepreneurship and Emerging Technology (MEET) brings together innovators from all academic backgrounds in order to gain the marketable skills required by top employers and become a well-rounded leader who excels in both entrepreneurship and emerging technology.

Graduates of the undergraduate and graduate programs often find themselves working as startup founders, digital marketers, growth hackers, social media marketers, UX designers, and more.




ETBD graduates have found success in a wide array of careers; some of these are

  • social media and digital marketing
  • experience design
  • app/web development
  • UI/UX
  • games design and development
  • VR/AR
  • broadcasting and media

Distinctive Features

  • Digital Innovation, providing intensive semester-long preprofessional experiences at locations throughout the United States and in Europe
  • Internships; every ETBD major completes an internship 
  • ET Leaders, an honors program for highly capable students for whom there are special sections of classes and who have the opportunity work in a consistent cohort for four years
  • Collaborative and client-based courses required for all ETBD majors

In addition to its two major programs, ETBD offers various minors and certificates, as well as courses open to all University students.
