Management of Technology, M.S.
The MS Management of Technology program (MOT) is a STEM program designed for college graduates and professionals who aim to make a difference in a world in which economic and social advancement is increasingly dependent on the integration of technology and business. This program introduces participants who aspire to become technology managers and leaders in the 21st century to cutting-edge thinking and best practice in technology management and innovation. The MOT program embodies the School of Engineering's academic philosophy of invention, innovation, and entrepreneurship (i2e). Put simply, i2e is about transforming scientific inventions into innovations that lead to significant economic and social impact.
NYU Tandon School of Engineering’s Department of Technology Management and Innovation is a recognized pioneer and leader in the field of technology management and has offered the MOT program for nearly twenty-five years. Rather than grafting a few technology management courses onto a traditional MBA program, the MOT program provides an innovative and integrated curriculum that is focused on developing professionals who wish to focus their careers on building, managing, or leading technology-driven organizations.
The department offers the MOT program in two formats: Full-time / Part-time On-Campus MOT and a purely Online MOT (NYU Tandon Online). *Courses are offered predominantly in the evenings to accommodate those students who work full-time during the day.

*The GRE Exam requirement for application to M.S Management of Technology and M.S. Industrial Engineering is waived for NYU Tandon B.S. Business and Technology Management graduates who meet all other NYU Tandon School of Engineering requirements for admission.
