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, 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 – 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 Boeing, Caterpillar, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC),  Equifax, Georgia-Pacific, NCR, Navy Nuclear Labs (NNL), Siemens, Southwire, Steelcase, and Ware2Go.

The Denning T&M Program is pleased to report that a total of 30 students interned for T&M corporate affiliates during the previous academic year or began working for a corporate affiliate full-time in May 2020. 

Since 2015, T&M students have the opportunity to travel abroad for a week-long international experience. In March 2019, 38 students went to China to earn a certificate in “Global Leadership – Conducting Business in China” from Shenzhen University. While abroad they toured companies in Hong Kong and Shenzhen, China, to gain an international business perspective. Unfortunately, the 2020 trip to Beijing was postponed until travel restrictions are lifted. We look forward to resuming our students' international enrichment when it is safe to travel again.

Additionally, I warmly welcome our recently admitted Class of 2022. The admitted class of 67 students has an average GPA of 3.72 and spans 15 Georgia Tech disciplines.

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.
