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. Core courses focus on a common management competency, while elective courses allow a student to customize depth in technology toward the student's long-term career goals. Technical depth can be provided wholly or partly in several technical areas: biotechnology, environment, e-commerce, systems, information technology, and administration.

The distance education technology specialization in the Master of Science (MS) in technology management program trains managers who manage technology-related aspects of distance education program development, including setting up appropriate technology configurations; selecting tools; and managing the technology-related aspects of media integration, course design, and development. It also examines the intricate relationship of globalization and communication technologies that exert a considerable influence in reshaping distance education.
