W. P. Carey School of Technology, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship

Launched as part of a university-wide focus and expansion on ASU's West Valley campus, the School of Technology, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship (TIE) is a new academic unit within the W. P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University.

With a strong focus on innovation and entrepreneurship — especially as it relates to technology and technology-oriented contexts — we will create several research centers and involve interdisciplinary faculty with a range of expertise. TIE currently offers innovative undergraduate degrees that emphasize data analytics skills, and supports experiential learning for all students pursuing W. P. Carey degrees at the West Valley campus.
