Overview

Transitioning new technical advances and discoveries into products or services that benefit society requires business and interpersonal skills as well as technical expertise. These include an ability to work effectively in teams, having a sound understanding of organizational behavior and management, technical marketing and communication, basic economics, personnel and project management, and accounting and finance. The Technology Management Program (TMP) provides a solid foundation in these areas to help cultivate managerial and entrepreneurial leadership for technology businesses.
