ATOM Think TankAbout Us

FIU’s First Faculty-Led Technology Consulting Practice and Student Experiential Learning Program!

The ATOM Think Tank is a professional-oriented learning program created and run by the Faculty of the Information Systems and Business Analytics (ISBA) department in the FIU College of Business. The program is designed to present a wholistic approach to student development by focusing on four main pillars: Analytics, Technology, Optimal Learning and Mentorship (ATOM).

Directed towards experiential education in technology and research, ATOM pursues industry cooperation and business partnerships to provide students with real-world experience that helps to bridge the gap between theoretical knowledge and practice.
