Dr. Dale Callahan is the lifeblood of what we do here. He is the Director of the Master of Engineering with a concentration in Information Engineering Management, a successful entrepreneur, and the author of Resumes are Worthless. The resources and skills that Dale brings to the table challenges conventional thinking and rocks the world of traditional business approaches — and the end result is undeniably superior to many other perspectives out there. Passionate about thinking outside the box, he is also the owner of AskDr Callahan, LLC where he trains high school students headed towards STEM-based majors in college to apply entrepreneurial thinking to the way they learn. Dale’s methodology injects intense entrepreneurial thinking into the professional mindset, and has come to be known as “The IEM Mindset.” The reality and immediate success rate that comes through Dale’s approach improves the mood of work, allows people to reach new heights in their career, and has set the high standard of excellence you expect at IEM.
