A Master of Science Program in Management of Technology
Jay Hoffman, Fairfield University
In the masters program in Management of Technology (MSMOT) at Fairfield University, we develop problem solving skills that increase inventiveness as well as provide knowledge in these important facets of management. Before this program existed, all management education had emphasized instruction in administration, management problem solving being limited to that of defining and applying the assets used in the creation of goods and services. Solving technical problems that involve the laws of physics, etc. were not addressed. In our ongoing technological revolution, it is often impossible to overcome management difficulties without the perspective that a combination of both technical and administrative knowledge provides. The MSMOT Program rectifies this by combining MBA courses with those in technical problem solving, thereby creating problem solvers who can manage and invent. In this paper the methods used to accomplish this are described.
