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 – 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 BoeingCaterpillarElavonEquifaxGeorgia-PacificHoneywellInterface, NCR, Shaw Industries, Siemens Healthineers, and Siemens.

The Denning T&M Program is pleased to report that a total of 31 students interned for T&M corporate affiliates during the previous academic year or began working for a corporate affiliate in May 2018. Seven students began full-time positions with a corporate affiliate beginning May 2018.

Since 2015, T&M students have the opportunity to travel abroad for a week-long international experience. This week, 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 both Hong Kong and Shenzhen, China to gain an international business perspective.

Additionally, I warmly welcome our recently admitted Class of 2021. The admitted class of 68 students has an average GPA of 3.77 and spans 17 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.
