Bridge Classroom Learning and Real World Experience in the Major Field Practicum
The Major Field Practicum, a six-hour community service requirement, allows students to gather workplace experience in a local business while helping their community. Each student is matched with a host organization of interest where he or she learns how the organization functions and gains practical insight into problem-solving and decision-making processes.
Students also may be invited to independent study and research positions alongside faculty where they can learn and participate in the creation of marketing knowledge or in servicing a real client. Students also gain experience in corporate social responsibility by becoming actively engaged in a community organization. These experiences enhance classroom learning and prepare students for information technology management jobs.

In addition to internships, campus-based research opportunities build skills for future information technology management jobs such as:
- Center for Entrepreneurship and New Business Development - The center focuses on entrepreneurial education, global innovation and practical research in pursuit of new venture creation, sustainability, social value creation and venture acceleration.
- Center for Ethics and Leadership - The mission of the center is to promote the practice of ethical behavior and effective leadership by engaging in activities that provide a forum for research, discussion and a better understanding of ethics and leadership amongst all stakeholders in society.
Student Business Incubator – A Business-Launching Boot Camp
With the Student Business Incubator, Florida Tech provides an opportunity for students with exceptional business ideas to turn those concepts into business realities.
