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 two tracks: The first, Leading Technological Change, focuses on leadership issues and skills required to stimulate and manage technological innovation and creativity; the second, Technology Entrepreneurship, focuses on helping entrepreneurs to bring valuable technological ideas, goods, and services to the marketplace. Courses may be available through distance learning as well as at Southwest Research Institute. 

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.
