Why study Technology Management? Technology has fundamentally changed the way companies think about and operate their businesses, offering unprecedented efficiency and speed in the way they develop and deliver products and services and manage operations. But today’s rapid pace of innovation and organizational change can be daunting for even the most experienced professional. Those early in their careers can find it particularly challenging as they prepare for leadership roles on projects, products, and teams. UC Santa Barbara's Master of Technology Management offers motivated early-to-mid-career professionals the essential business knowledge and entrepreneurial mindset to navigate their careers and expand leadership opportunities within technology-driven firms.

At the core of Technology Management are five key factors that leaders must assimilate into their business practices in order to adequately adapt to change, continuously innovate, and drive competitive advantage. These factors serve as the foundation for the Master of Technology Management curriculum.
