Technology Management

Overview

The challenges facing managers are increasingly as much about technology as they are about people.

The master’s degree in Technology Management at Stevens is designed to give you the skills and perspective required to lead in environments where technology is central to the mission — and at a pace that's ideal for professionals. Rather than taking classes after a busy day in the office, you'll do so on alternating Saturdays as part of a cohort of experienced professionals. Faculty in this program are particularly distinguished for their corporate experience, and their insights from research and the workplace will prepare you for the challenges of leadership in the digital age.

After completing the program, most students continue for another year to earn an EMBA, which offers a more comprehensive examination of leadership topics and an international business component that includes a visit to another country. 

Technology emphasis

For those who aspire to lead, it’s not enough to hire the right data scientists to support decision-making. You must be able to confidently challenge those conclusions, recommend new tools and get your hands dirty with the data in evaluating strategic opportunities.

This allows for shared experiences from the workplace to shape learning and encourages deep connections between professionals, who work closely together on projects and presentations throughout their time in the master's program. The cohort experience is continued for students who go on to the EMBA program for an additional year.
