Management of Technology

Technology affects every aspect of business. To stay ahead of the curve—and the competition—you need an advantage.

That’s exactly what the Management of Technology (MoT) specialization of Georgia Tech Scheller’s Executive MBA program provides. Learn how to forecast trends, embrace emerging technologies, and manage innovation and organizational change.

The program starts with EMBA core coursework, then transitions to a specialized curriculum focusing on emerging technologies, change management, technology forecasting, and analysis of global environments.
