MSc in Technology Management

The effective management of technology and technological innovation is essential if all the potential benefits for individuals and organisations are to be realised. Technology has the capability to transform products and processes and can make a significant contribution to organisational performance, economic growth and social well-being. Technology managers need to make complex decisions associated with identification and evaluation of technologies, developing new or improved products and processes and integrating technology with other business processes, and to manage change required by technological innovation and implementation. There is an increasing demand across public, private and not-for-profit sectors for people with the vision and the operational and strategic capability to plan, develop and manage technology and technological innovation effectively.

This MSc will provide you with the knowledge and skills critical to making the right decisions about technology acquisition, exploitation, implementation and innovation, and to really make a difference to your organisation, and your own professional development. The modules studied as part of your postgraduate certificate and diploma are designed to progressively develop your knowledge and skills. Certificate study focuses on the operational aspects of managing technological innovation and change and the diploma’s emphasis is on the strategic management of technology and technological innovation. The MSc involves in depth investigation of a technology management topic or problem of your choice.

This qualification offers both a research route and a professional route. If you need a more professionally-oriented qualification you can take The MSc professional project (T847) (30 credits). If you prefer a more research-oriented MSc, you can take the 60-credit Research project (T802). Both offer a rigorous approach to solving complex real world problems and offer essential skills for systematically and successfully addressing technology management issues in your own organisation and wider contexts. The longer research project allows more in-depth study and further develops your academic research skills. Both modules provide an excellent platform for further research studies.

Throughout your studies you have opportunities to apply your learning to your own particular technology context and so add value to your career and your workplace while you are studying. The modules are designed to be relevant whatever your personal background and experience – the knowledge and skills taught can be applied to all types of technology and all economic sectors. If technology is a significant success factor in your organisation or role then technology management is relevant to you. Our students are drawn from a very wide range of backgrounds including IT, manufacturing, healthcare, defence, financial services, local and national government services.

Career relevance

The technology management programme develops analytical skills and provides practically relevant knowledge that will equip you well for a variety of management and leadership roles. The competent technology manager is a highly valued professional, capable of ensuring that the organisation reaps all the potential rewards from its investment in technology of whatever type. You will develop a range of job-related and transferable skills such as critical thinking, creative problem solving, and the ability to cope with rapid technological change. The capabilities in research and problem-solving developed can be exploited in all professional situations at all management levels. Employers are also impressed by the commitment and determination it takes to succeed with the OU while keeping up family and work commitments.
