Recognizing the vital role of information and communication technology (ICT) in the world today, the University of Nebraska-Omaha (USA), the University of Wisconsin – Eau Claire (USA), Austria’s Management Center Innsbruck (MCI) and Germany’s Technische Universität Braunschweig (TUBS) have partnered in a consortium to implement a “Global IT Project Management” program. This program emphasizes transatlantic student and faculty mobility around the themes of IT entrepreneurship, global collaboration, and IT management and research. The program’s overarching goal is to help enhance relationships for cooperative research and teaching, and improve mutual understanding of U.S. and EU culture.
Over the four years of the project grant, a total of 48 US and EU students and 18 faculty will participate in the program. A total of 12 students will study abroad per year (six from the EU and six from the US). Faculty members will be supported to visit partner universities as part of the grant to help manage logistics, develop relationships for establishing cooperative research and teaching, and enhancing mutual understanding of US and EU cultures and business/research practices.
