Internet of Things and Executive Education Opportunities

Translate Carnegie Mellon's emerging Internet of Things (IoT) research into actionable business value.  

The Internet of Things (IoT) is reaching critical mass in many sectors of the economy, with the prevalence of IoT devices creating significant challenges for the safety, security, reliability, and privacy of consumers and enterprises that use them.

Tackling the IoT requires understanding the technology integrated with business application. Executive Education draws upon all of the colleges at Carnegie Mellon to deliver executive education modules and collaboration forums to better understand the technology, use cases and changes in the competitive landscape, and identify innovations to add value to organizations. This educational effort will accelerate efforts to make IoT devices secure and privacy-preserving, and create a venue for sharing across organizations and industries.

The objective is to assess emerging IoT technologies and current use cases, and translate these into opportunities to create innovative product and service offerings, increase operational efficiencies, reduce risk, and collaborate with ecosystem partners. The programs provide a baseline of foundational knowledge, updates on new developments, and engagement on the potential for business impact.

Modular Program Content

The programs are modular and can be tailored to different audiences ranging from boards of directors, executive leadership teams, operating units, product development, and functional disciplines such as finance, engineering, and supply chain management.
