Why pursue an M.S. in Management of Technology at UTSA?
The Master of Science in Management of Technology (M.S. MOT) differs significantly from both the M.B.A. and the M.B.A. with a concentration in Management of Technology. The M.S. MOT has a different set of required Common Body of Knowledge (CBK) courses and focuses on management issues and skills required to help bring into the marketplace and manage advances in technology in the form of ideas, goods, and services. Courses are from both the College of Business and the College of Engineering. Courses are available through traditional or distance learning.
The M.S. MOT degree is an interdisciplinary degree involving faculty from the College of Business and the College of Engineering. This alliance places the MOT program on the cutting edge of Management of Technology and provides the broader view needed for technological leadership.
