MOT vs. MBA
The Technological Leadership Institute’s world-renowned M.S. in Management of Technology (MOT) degree program has been combining technology and business to advance both sectors for more than two decades. The MOT is a management degree with an emphasis in strategic technological leadership. Often compared to an MBA, the MOT has the following distinctions for technology-based professionals:
- Students study accounting, finance, and marketing; however, the curriculum also covers technology forecasting, innovation management, new technology product development, and commercialization.
- Students participate in the International Management of Technology Project to use the skills they’ve gained to address management of technology issues in the international market.
- Each student chooses a significant topic for the MOT capstone project. This work-based research project enables students to directly apply their MOT education at work.
34% of our students become executives within five to seven years.
50% or more become managers and senior managers within five to seven years.
83% or more exceed the reported annual salary of a mechanical engineer in the Twin Cities metropolitan area.
