Business Innovation & Technology (BIT Center)

Miguel B. Fernandez Family School of Global Business, Trade and Transportation

The aim of the Miguel B. Fernandez Family School of Global Business, Trade & Transportation is to explore how new and emerging technologies disrupt existing business practices and create opportunities for students. The Business Innovation and Technology Center is a step towards achieving this goal by combining state-of-the-art tools, industry expertise, and strong curriculum pedagogy.

The BIT Center, located at the Wolfson campus with satellite locations in Kendall, focuses on the study areas of Marketing, Finance, Business Analytics, Logistics, and Accounting through the use of three labs:

  • The Digital Media and Social Marketing Lab
  • Financial Technologies and Trading Lab
  • The Business Analytics Application Lab

The labs function as hubs for exploration and innovation as well as classroom settings. All labs feature the latest software tools in the financial service industry, digital marketing, and in business analytics to provide students with practical hands-on experience in developing the most current and in-demand skills required by the industry.
