The master's program in Technology Management was created to help busy working professionals achieve mastery in the traditional management disciplines and an understanding of how technology is creating opportunities in new places in all industry categories. It was designed with consideration of the many demands — professional, family and others — faced by students, and therefore holds to a schedule of meeting on alternate Saturdays, for a total of eight days per semester. The degree takes less than two years to complete.
The program is for students with at least five years of full-time work experience who want to take leadership roles at their organizations and better understand how to manage technology and business effectively. Students will draw heavily upon their experiences in the workplace throughout the course of the program. Those who complete the program are encouraged to continue for another year to earn an EMBA (MBA for experienced professionals) degree.
To be considered for the Technology Management program, students must include the following with their applications:
- Two letters of recommendation.
- Official transcript from each academic institution attended.
- Official conferment of your bachelor’s degree.
- An up-to-date résumé.
Please note that the GMAT is not required for admission to the Technology Management program.
Learning by doing
For experienced professionals, lessons have to go beyond the comfort zone of the classroom, so that leaders can try out new concepts in the field before bringing them to the workplace. For this reason, the School of Business includes a strong experiential learning component that challenges students to apply lessons on a leadership retreat.
The Technology Management program is the longest running in the history of the School of Business. That gives students a powerful network of more than 1,000 alumni to tap into when seeking advice, professional development or career prospects. Additionally, the cohort nature of the program ensures tight bonds between students both during their studies and after completing their degrees.
The Hoboken location of the campus puts Stevens close to a host of business and cultural opportunities that enhance the learning experience for students. Classes often have the opportunity to hear from managers and decision-makers at Fortune 500 companies that are located just across the river in New York City, adding an invaluable degree of relevance to the program.
