The Center for Advancing Business through Information Technology (CABIT) is a research center housed in the W. P. Carey School of Business. Its mission is to foster collaboration between industry and academics to help identify, implement, and evaluate technology innovations that can optimize firm performance.
CABIT meets this objective through a wide range of activities. It sponsors events which attract industry-wide experts to the Phoenix Valley to explore a wide range of issues from collaboration and innovation through governance and security. It coordinates research projects which match leading scholars with in depth knowledge with organizations facing emerging issues. Finally, it supports activities to incorporate "real world" issues into the curriculum by facilitating the identification of business leaders who can present to executive lectures, classroom meetings, and sponsor student competitions.
CABIT's strength lies in its ability to work with cross-functional teams with mission critical strategic initiatives, and we take pride in creating and disseminating knowledge about the power of IT in today's global business environment.
