JPMorgan Chase invested financial and human resources to help SU design and build the Global Enterprise Technology (GET) curriculum. In 2007, a roadmap was created that defined the approach for experiential, problem-based learning in large-scale global technology environments. Truly interdisciplinary in nature, the GET Curriculum is designed to better prepare students for successful technology careers. In the context of experiential, problem-based learning and with access and connections to the world of industry practice, the key learning outcomes of the GET curriculum are:
By the fall 2009 semester, Syracuse University faculty had developed 9 new and enhanced 7 existing courses. For each of these courses, a development team consisting of an SU faculty member and a JPMorgan Chase course "advisor" created course content, arranged for guest lectures, and evaluated student projects. Through this arrangement, faculty members had direct access to JPMorgan Chase practitioners to discuss course structure and ensure the curriculum reflected the realities of working in a global enterprise technology organization. Additionally, more than 36 JPMorgan Chase and other industry practitioners were guest lecturers in GET courses or participated in the campus-wide speaker series.
