Management of Technology (MOT) Concentration Information
A hands-on, clinical program grounded in the latest research and theory, Management of Technology (MOT) prepares students to be informed agents of innovative change in the workplace. Management of Technology addresses the fact that technological innovation is now the single most important driver of competitive success in many industries. In every innovative firm, shorter product lifecycles and more rapid new product introductions make managing new product development, creating beneficial partnerships, protecting innovation, and crafting product deployment strategies more important than ever.
Through the UNM Technology Business Plan Competition, the Small Business Assistance Program, active collaboration with the national labs and technology firms, and in-class instruction, MOT students actively engage in their own technology entrepreneurship and in moving technology-based organizations to higher levels of success.
The field of Management of Technology (MOT) develops professionals who excel in a technology-based economy and promote the creation of high-wage jobs in the community. Engaging in New Mexico economic development activities and generating world-class research in technology commercialization, the Anderson MOT program has been ranked in the top ten U.S. technology management programs and in the top 50 worldwide by the International Association of Management of Technology (IAMOT).
