Our team-work oriented curriculum that integrates quantitative business, applied computer science, and human-centered design principles is shaping a new generation of innovator. We believe it's a totally unique program. David Keck Inaugural Director and Professor of Practice

The Raikes School offers a one-of-a-kind academic experience for students who compete in the top 1% of their peers. Using a blend of classroom instruction and hands-on training, our curriculum integrates state of the art software engineering and computer science concepts, quantitative business methodology interwoven with communication, leadership, and human-centered design. As students advance through the four-year program, they will gain mastery of the skills needed to innovate in the 21st century.

Our curriculum isn't the only aspect of our academic model that stands out. Courses in the Raikes School are taught by a mix of resident faculty and consulting faculty from the College of Business Administration and Department of Computer Science and Engineering. Professors and lecturers incorporate a practitioner perspective in their approach to teaching. They work to ensure that students not only gain a deep understanding of the complex theories of computer science and management, but also understand how to put the knowledge they gain into practice to transform the industries and organizations in which they will work after graduation.
