By publicising educational opportunities and scholarships that lie at the intersection of technology and business, the Hispanic Technology Executive Council and Illinois Institute of Technology (Illinois Tech) are seeking to increase the presence of Hispanic executives in the technology profession.
In addition to prospective Stuart School of Business students, HITEC’s Foundation Scholars and HITEC corporate Emerging Executive Program Graduates who are prepared to pursue a Master of Business Administration or Master of Science degree in the fall of 2023 from the STEM-focused Illinois Tech Stuart School of Business will be considered for prestigious scholarships from a combined pool of up to $2 million. Programs at the Stuart School of Business provide learners with flexible, fully online, hybrid, and in-person delivery options.
The goals of Illinois Tech and HITEC are to empower students and rising leaders in technology by creating a path for them to realise their goals through access to education, opportunities for lifelong learning, scholarships, and mentorships. The mission of HITEC is to achieve permanent fairness from the classroom to the boardroom by accelerating the strength and influence of Hispanic technology leaders. “We are devoted to developing fresh initiatives that foster the development of Hispanic tech talent. In order to strengthen the participation of Hispanic technology leaders in corporate America and beyond, I am enthusiastic about our partnership with Illinois Tech “Guillermo Diaz Jr., Chairman of HITEC, said. Our goal is to foster leadership development among the next generation of Hispanic technology professionals by fostering connections, inspiration, and growth. A new path to excellence that is central to Illinois Tech’s future is guided by four principles: first, enhancing the university’s role as a national leader in economic mobility and an engine of opportunity; second, pursuing growth through reimagining education to serve learners at all stages of life; third, igniting future innovation by giving students agency; and fourth, demonstrating purpose-driven citizenship in service to Chicago and the rest of the world.
