About the Collaboration
In June 2007, JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Syracuse University established a unique corporate-university collaboration and joint venture. The purpose of the collaboration is to develop education and work experience innovations in the area of financial services information technology, leveraging each other’s knowledge and expertise in the building of a best in class curriculum for entry-level technologists and to collaborate on projects of joint interest that provide value to both organizations and to society.
In 2009, The HUB was launched to include other universities and industries. The HUB universities and industries share knowledge to better prepare students to work in complex technology environments and to develop creative and innovative solutions to global technology business problems. The HUB goal is for students, faculty, companies, universities and the broader community to benefit from these collaborative efforts. Universities and companies collaborate in four key areas: curriculum enhancement, extended internships, applied research and community engagement.
