    Applications Engineer, Infeon Technologies

  •

    “As a non-tech person before my MBA, I immersed myself in the center's offerings and learned a lot from each workshop and the speaker events.”

    Eric Hsu  (MBA ’20)

  •  

    “The Easton Technology Management Center has given me both a point of view on a wide range of topics across tech and a ready framework for thinking about tech-related business opportunities.”

    William Ames  (MBA ’20)
