By Korie Dean, University Communications

The Master of Arts in Educational Innovation, Technology and Entrepreneurship (MEITE) is among the first degree programs of its kind in the United States.

Now in its third year, the program explores educational technologies, the science of learning and entrepreneurship. The curriculum includes training to help students develop and bring innovations to the education marketplace. Using a personalized studies model, coursework is customized to each student’s interests within these areas.

While the program is housed in the School of Education, students also take courses in the Kenan-Flagler Business School, the School of Information and Library Science and the Department of Computer Science.

“The program takes advantage of expertise in these other campus units that can help our students when they seek to create innovations that can be developed and brought to the educational marketplace,” said Kelly Ryoo, an associate professor in the School of Education and director of the MEITE program.
