Program Description:

A Master of Science in Technology Management at UMUC provides a broad-based core of management competency in the central business functions, along with a deep understanding of generic technologies that enable specific business capabilities.

Technical depth can be provided wholly or partly in several technical areas: biotechnology, environment, e-commerce, systems, information technology, and administration.

It also examines the intricate relationship of globalization and communication technologies that exert a considerable influence in reshaping distance education.
