The MOT Journey

Successful managers need to keep up with the seemingly non-stop pace of technological advances to spot fads from worthwhile investments and get the most out of the technology they implement. NYU-Poly’s Management of Technology master’s program will teach you how to be such a manager and leader. You’ll learn how to work with people, processes and tools to best utilize technologies with accelerated product life cycles, seek innovation from diverse sources, and compete globally. And most importantly you'll increase your knowledge to be able to work on what you like and have fun doing it.

An MBA will surely give you a solid foundation in business fundamentals, but will it give you the insights to manage ever-more tech-centered enterprises?

NYU-Poly’s MOT program pairs MBA essentials with the complex decision-making skills required of successful technology managers.

Innovation vs. Administration

Advantages of MOT over a generic MBA:

  • Courses more relevant to today’s technology-driven business world
  • A quicker path to the degree
  • Executive format option lets you work at the same time
  • Lower overall cost compared to many MBA programs
