WATERLOO – The Laurier School of Business & Economics is proud to announce another Canadian first: a Master of Science in Management in the Technology Management field, which is being offered as an executive program designed to create senior leaders for a fast-moving global economy.
Knowing how important careers are, we have designed this one-year part-time program to accommodate busy work schedules with no gap in income. The Executive Masters in Technology Management (EMTM) commits to develop leaders who will effectively manage advances in science and technology in the context of the dynamic and strategic business skills critical to innovation and competition.
“For technology-driven businesses, intense competition and global markets demand that the most recent innovations move quickly to worldwide use,” said Dr. Hamid Noori, chair in Enterprise Integration and Technology Management, and director of PhD and Research-based Masters Programs at the Laurier School of Business & Economics. “The Laurier EMTM program will specifically address the overlapping disciplines of business and technology and prepare leaders to manage both technology and the process of innovation in a high-speed, high-cost, high-risk global environment.”
This unique one-year weekend program combines state-of-the-art management practices and insights into emerging technologies that are driving global innovation and change. Beginning in January 2011, a select group of students will be coached by an elite group of professors and professionals sourced from the best institutions around the world, including Wilfrid Laurier University, culminating in a Master of Science degree in Management.
