In partnership with our Corporate Affiliates, the Denning T&M Program provides top undergraduate students the opportunity to become fluent in one another's disciplines and gain new perspectives through common coursework and close teamwork.

Graduates with these skills and experiences are in short supply at most universities and many businesses have to spend significant amounts of time and money to bridge the training gap for new employees.


Cross-Training Students

Admission to the Denning Technology & Management Program is highly competitive and is limited to 70 students per class.

Students know that the Denning T&M Program sets them apart from graduates of other universities.
