Join us at Laurier

Being a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.


Curriculum

The Lazaridis Executive Master's in Technology Management (Lazaridis EMTM) curriculum provides you with the expertise to manage and lead innovative enterprises. The program is built on theme-based learning to create a highly engaging experience. You will be equipped with the relevant knowledge needed to deal with complex problems at your organization. You will also gain insight from the expertise and shared experiences of an elite network of peers.

Over the duration of the program, you will complete three modules and 10 core courses. Our courses focus on multiple aspects of leading an organization in a technology-driven economy, including mergers and acquisitions of tech companies, strategic management, marketing technological innovation and sales. The three modules provide overarching themes: strategic and technology roadmapping, building innovative organizational capacities and fostering organizational renewal. As a candidate, you will advance from specialized knowledge in your current role to a strong understanding of all conversations at the executive table.
