    Join us Monday, June 1 at 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. for a webinar aimed at prospective applicants to the M.S. in Management of Technology (MOT) program and all others interested in technology management, innovation and leadership.

    Topics will include methods for enhancing project management and customer satisfaction; product improvement and startup methodology, including market demand analysis; product line engineering as a means of systematically addressing research and development of products; and optimizing company growth for scalability by harnessing employee capabilities and modernizing customer service tools. The webinar will also address the following questions:

    • What impact can the MOT degree, curriculum and the connections I make in the program have on my future?
    • What does an MOT capstone project look like?
    • How can MOT advance my career?

    Learn more in a live panel session with recent graduates of the MOT program. Here is an opportunity to hear how capstone projects and other elements of MOT have helped transform professional careers!
