Tech Focus

We teach you what you need to be a tech leader. In contrast, an MBA teaches you to be a jack of all trades but master of none. Not surprisingly, tech executives prefer an MTM to an MBA.

Key Takeaway

We train you to be a tech leader.

Specialized Faculty

Evidence-based tech management. Our faculty have started, led, researched, and consulted with major tech companies. In contrast, MBA programs rely on guest lecturers.

Key Takeaway

We teach you evidence-based tech management.


9 months versus 2 years for an MBA. No superfluous requirements and electives. We specialize in tech management and enable you to gain on-hands, real-world experience.

Key Takeaway

We prepare you to be a tech manager in 9 months.
