An innovative approach to learning innovation

You have a big idea. We’ll help you bring it to life (and maybe even bring it to market) through our interdisciplinary creative technologies program.

Combining the liberal arts, computer science, design thinking and business, you’ll hone an entrepreneurial mindset, master interpersonal communication skills and develop a firm grasp of the business and economics of tech.

You’ll be guided by passionate professors and surrounded by fellow innovators as you develop and pitch your ideas, sharpen your problem-solving skills and prepare for a life and career as big as your ideas.

Hands On

Don’t wait to innovate. Manage actual (college-supplied) funds through the Berry Investment Group, participate in hackathons and pitch competitions and work as a paid employee in the Berry business office.
