Whether you are an engineer seeking management acumen, or a business professional in need of more analytical training, the MSTM’s ability to act as a bridge between the two cohorts is its hallmark.
For Graduates to Professionals: Beyond the bridging of engineering and business, the MSTM tailors itself to two groups of students; those who have a few years’ experience, and those are only recently finished with their undergraduate education. As such, the MSTM is ideal for both fast track professionals and recent graduates who want to distinguish and challenge themselves.
Curriculum The Technology Management Program is designed to maximize your preparation for managing technological change in any marketplace, and thereby offer you a competitive advantage. The rigorous, 40-hour business focused curriculum provides a wonderful foundation for helping you to formulate effective and multi-pronged strategies that will ensure strong and sustainable growth for your organization. MSTM’s coursework can be divided into three categories: core business courses that build a solid business foundation, technology management courses that target management issues of technology, and professional developmental activities.
