Who Do We Admit?

The Master of Technology Management (MTM) at the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) is a Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) degree program that teaches you to become a tech leader. A tech leader is one who builds and manages technical teams, develops and launches new products, and starts and runs new companies.

Factors we consider important for admission include the following:

  • Your interest in pursuing a career in the tech industry
  • Your undergraduate degree
  • Your grade point average (GPA)
  • Your testing scores (GRE and/or GMAT)
  • Your academic and extracurricular pursuits

In some cases, we might also interview you before admission.
