Dean's Message

The United States needs more high-quality professionals in science, mathematics, engineering and technology.  In addition these professionals need practical experience in economic development and innovation.

The Missouri Innovation Academy can help.  The Academy focuses on and helps prepare students for successful careers in economic development and innovations with an emphasis in science and engineering.  For the Academy, Missouri State takes full advantage of its assets- two strong colleges- the College of Business and the College of Natural and Applied Sciences.  We blend instruction from faculty in science, math, technology, engineering and business with practical experience of researchers and corporate partners in the Roy Blunt Jordan Valley Innovation Center.

We believe the result can be a life changing experience for students who have superior talent.  We believe we can help identify and nurture the next generation of scientists, engineers, mathematicians and entrepreneurs for our country.

We invite you to be apart of this exciting summer experience.  You will find it invigorating, challenging and unforgettable!
