BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Months after GE Aviation announced a major investment in Lafayette, General Electric Co. continues to expand its presence in Indiana. The company has detailed a new partnership with Indiana University on Thursday.

A two-year graduate-level information technology leadership course — which includes classroom, online and on-the-job training — will be offered at Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business. The customized educational program for IT professionals is part of GE’s Information Technology Leadership Program.

“This program is a great example of the investment GE is making in training and development,” GE Chief Information Officer Jamie Miller told News 18 in a release. “Our IT professionals push the limits of technology and the courses offered through this program, which will focus on rapidly disruptive technologies like cloud and mobility, and will arm participants with the skills needed to drive breakthrough levels of efficiency, productivity, and innovation for GE and our customers.”

Officials said courses will focus on five specialty areas identified by GE, including analysis leading to solutions, program and project management, service management and platform and infrastructure management.

Additionally, faculty will work with GE practice and thought leaders to customize existing courses and to develop new courses as needed.
