The specializations offered by FEU Tech give students a bird’s-eye view of the changing structure of the business. For example, specializing in business analytics will provide students with an overview of the current trends in information technology that drives businesses.

“The importance of innovation can’t be overstated,” said Dr. Benson Tan, senior executive director, FEU Tech. “Though it’s a big part of it, we don’t pursue innovation solely because it will help our students in their future. The pursuit of innovation is important because we believe our students will have a big part in nation-building and creating a better society. That alone makes everything we do worth it.”
