A degree in social and economic development policy at Illinois Tech will help students hone their knowledge of how globalization is impacting their local community and vice versa. It will equip students with the skills they need to work on the front lines of public policy development, opening doors to careers that are actively engaged with the social, economic and environmental policy issues that are as fundamental today as they will be decades into the future. Students will also focus on the role technology plays in alleviating poverty, as well as how technology shapes economic competitiveness.
