The telecommunications industry is undergoing rapid change as technology innovations change how companies in this space operate.

“My Stevens degree has made me a broader and more balanced thinker who understands technology, can organize projects and lead people.”

Chris Levendos, M.S. Telecommunications Management '04; head of fiber deployment, Google

As companies shift resources from landline service to building out 4G and LTE offerings, they also are looking to leverage their networks to provide new services and applications to their customers. This has become a vital shift as traditional telecommunications providers find their business models under attack by rivals like Google, Apple and Netflix.

Stevens created its master’s degree in Network & Communication Management & Services to train managers in the telecommunications industry to think about the future of networks and services, and to prepare them to take on leadership roles in the telecom industry or in the communications departments of large companies. Graduates will gain a broader perspective on the network — to see it as a tool, rather than a bunch of routers or wireless access points, that can be used to help customers solve their business problems. The STEM-designated degree program can be earned entirely online.
