TI:GER® Full time and Evening MBA FAQs

Can I take other immersive tracks while I'm in the TI:GER® Program?


Is TI:GER® a technology commercialization program?

TI:GER-- Technology Innovation: Generating Economic Results -- is a technology innovation program. Although students do learn technology commercialization, it is less than 10 percent of the program, consistent with its relative importance in business.

I heard that TI:GER® courses are extra -- that I take them in addition to the MBA curriculum. Is that true?

No. All TI:GER courses are electives, like all other electives, that count toward completion of your MBA degree.

Do TI:GER® courses require more work than other courses?

No. All TI:GER courses and labs, like all other MBA courses, award credit hours, and each credit hour is a standard unit.    

How do I apply to the TI:GER® Program?

The MBA application includes a TI:GER application, so you can apply to TI:GER when you apply to the MBA program. If you decide to apply to the TI:GER program after your admission to the MBA program, or even after you have started taking courses in the MBA program, you can apply here.
