The Lazaridis Executive Master’s in Technology Management (Lazaridis EMTM) within the Lazaridis School of Business and Economics is now accepting applicants for September 2016. The Lazaridis EMTM provides world-class management education for up-and-coming leaders in the technology industry as part of the mandate of the recently created Lazaridis Institute for the Management of Technology Enterprises.
“Many senior-level technology managers have moved into leadership positions without all of the requisite knowledge to strategically manage their organization’s growth,” said Micheál Kelly, dean of the Lazaridis School of Business and Economics. “The Lazaridis EMTM will enable them to contribute at the highest level to their current executive team, as well as advance to the C-suite themselves.”
Graduates of the program receive a Master of Science (MSc)
Graduates of the program receive a Master of Science (MSc) in Management degree. The Lazaridis EMTM has the depth of a research-based MSc but is tailored for professionals with years of industry experience. It provides practical and relevant knowledge for managers in a technology-driven economy.
