Master of Business Administration in Management of Technology

As technology alters the business landscape at an unprecedented pace, the Master of Business Administration – Management of Technology (Executive MBA in Management of Technology or EMBA-MOT) program will help you stay ahead of the curve and the competition. Leverage your technology background for competitive advantage as you learn to cope with the challenges presented by rapid innovation, shorter product life cycles, and emerging technologies.

No one understands innovation and technical experts like Georgia Tech, and the professors in our top-ranked business school know how to enhance your technical knowledge and increase your business savvy. In addition to gaining a foundation in business through MBA core courses, you will learn how to manage innovation and organizational change, conduct technology forecasting, and identify promising emerging technologies.

Through the EMBA-MOT program, you will gain the leadership and communication skills that are essential to maintain an upward trajectory in your career. The program will complement your technology background and help you leverage it for advancement. You will learn not only to speak the language of business fluently, but also to think and plan strategically. You will gain the confidence to communicate with senior leadership and manage teams of technical professionals at home and abroad. As more and more technical jobs are outsourced to employees in newly industrialized countries such as China and India, the role of the technical professional in the U.S. is rapidly changing. You may find that your role is shifting from performing technical duties to managing an international workforce or multiple vendors. The EMBA-MOT program will equip you to handle these new challenges while improving the performance of your company.

At the conclusion of the seventeen-month program, you will go on an international study tour of China, which includes visits to global research and development centers and meetings with executives from top companies. The trip also includes cultural excursions and networking events with local executives to complement your international learning experience.
