M.S. Management of Technology: Executive Education for Technology Leaders

The Master of Science in Management of Technology (MOT) degree program is aimed at transforming engineering, science and other technical professionals into business leaders. The mission and goals of all TLI degree programs are achieved by carefully selecting candidates through a rigorous interview and selection process. We accept applications to the MOT degree program on a rolling basis for the program’s fall start (Aug.) of each year. Key dates are as follows:

  • Aug Classes Begin
  • Mar Merit Scholarship Deadline
  • July Need-Based Scholarship Deadline

Due to limited cohort size, applicants should begin the admissions process well before the deadline.
