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 homeland security management specialization in the Master of Science (MS) technology management program provides managers and practitioners with the background to prepare for and deal with a wide range of man-made and natural threats and vulnerabilities at the community and organizational level. The curriculum prepares students to perform security risk assessments and to develop strategies to mitigate threats to people, physical facilities, and information-dependent critical infrastructure, as well to plan for and manage operational recovery.
