Technology & Management Program

Director's Message

I am privileged to serve as the Faculty Director of the Steven A. Denning Technology & Management (T&M) Program. Our team, Robert Burgess, Sheena Brown, Jenni Jarrett, Anne Lynch, John Stanford, and I, look forward to the exciting future ahead.

The minors offered by the program – Computing & Business, Engineering & Business, and Technology & Business – continue to equip the best students at Georgia Tech with the academic training and professional skills to pave their paths to corporate leadership. Thanks to our benefactor Mr. Denning’s vision, we are now open to all Georgia Tech undergraduate students.

Our corporate affiliates have been integral partners in enabling our program’s continuing success. We are thankful for our strong relationship with all 11 corporate affiliates; they include Acuity Brands, BoeingCaterpillarElavonEquifaxGeorgia-PacificThe Home Depot, HoneywellInterface, NCR, and Siemens. During the previous academic year, 28 T&M students have started internships or jobs with our corporate affiliates.

Since 2015, T&M students have the opportunity to travel abroad for a week-long international experience. In March 2017, students went to China to earn a certificate in “Global Leadership – Conducting Business in China” from Shenzhen University. In March 2018, another group of students will travel to Hong Kong and Shenzhen to continue the relationship with partners abroad.

Additionally, I warmly welcome our recently admitted Class of 2019. The admitted class of 69 students has an average GPA of 3.8 and spans 13 Georgia Tech disciplines. We are now in the process of evaluating applications for the Class of 2020, and we look forward to the upcoming interview process.

In maintaining our culture of excellence, we continue to seek feedback from our corporate affiliates, program faculty, alumni, and students on the program’s curriculum and activities. I look forward to continuing collaborations with all stakeholders of the T&M Program in enabling Georgia Tech to be on the leading edge of the intersections of technology and management.
