Join us at Laurier

Becoming 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.


The Lazaridis EMTM provides an educational experience that prepares leaders with the skills to last the entirety of their professional career. As the business and technology landscape changes significantly year-over-year, our goal is to educate our learners in the fundamentals of business while providing them with the skills necessary to be nimble and innovative in light of potential industry, culture and career changes.

Our executive management program is designed for impact that is both immediate and ongoing. After only a few sessions, our candidates are able to begin implementing new strategies at their organizations. They gain better leadership capabilities and the confidence to creatively address a broad range of business challenges.

Candidates frequently advance to more senior roles and become greater contributors to organizational success even before graduation.

EMTM Innovators Network

All graduates of the Lazaridis Executive Masters of Technology Management program are automatically members of the exclusive EMTM Innovators Network. This network of professionals from across tech-focused industries gives graduates the opportunity to re-connect with old classmates and build new relationships with members of other cohorts.

There are four distinct benefits to being a member of the EMTM Innovators Network.

  • Stay current on industry trends: you will also have lifetime access to all EMTM classes held bi-weekly in Waterloo (spaces will be limited to accommodate class size). Need a refresher on any of the subject matter covered by the program? Let us know which classes you’d like to be part of and we’ll be in touch to confirm the date.
  • Participate in integrated session panels: lend your industrial expertise and academic experience to learners in the current cohort by joining an integrated session panel as a judge.
  • Enjoy access to all EMTM networking receptions: the Lazaridis EMTM program hosts two networking receptions a year (one in Waterloo and one in Toronto). You will be invited to join these events as graduates to take advantage of the social and professional opportunities they offer.
  • Learn from best at the Lazaridis EMTM Speaker Series: the Lazaridis EMTM program routinely invites leaders from across the tech industry to their insights into the Canadian tech landscape. As a graduate, you will always be invited to sit in on each speaker session, free of charge.

Networking Opportunities

Lazaridis EMTM learners have access to a wide network of technology industry experts including their cohort, EMTM alumni, special guest speakers and the Golden Triangle Angel Networking (GTAN), an accredited investor group with close to 100 members from the Toronto-Waterloo Region Corridor. Additionally, our candidates are regularly invited to relevant talks and networking events hosted by groups such as Communitech and the Conference Board of Canada.
