M.S. in Technological Systems Management

Program Description

The Master’s Degree in Technological Systems Management offers three degree concentrations: Technology Management, Resilience and Sustainability, and Educational Technology. This degree is well-suited for recent baccalaureate graduates; however, those with some practical experience in the workplace who are seeking to gain pertinent management and necessary leadership skills to advance their careers will find our courses especially appropriate, and will appreciate that our face-to-face classes are offered in the evenings to accommodate work schedules. It is also possible to complete our degree programs entirely on-line, through a combination of evening synchronous classes and asynchronous classes for those who wish to set their own schedule. Course offerings are scheduled so that it is possible to complete the degree in three full-time (9 credit) semesters if an additional course is taken over the summer. It is also feasible to complete the degree on a part-time basis.
