At a Glance

The Management of Technology MBA is a dynamic mix of solid academic theory complemented by practical experience designed to mirror the challenging situations facing the technology and biotechnology sectors.

Leadership Intensive

The program begins with a week-long leadership intensive (four full days) focused on leadership skills, combining academic activities with personal and professional development workshops. This is an opportunity to meet the class and faculty, and establish a sense of team-building and community within the cohort. Please note that students will be required to take time off work for this first week.

Cohort Model of Education

The MOT MBA program is cohort-based for enhanced learning. Students spend the entire program with classmates whose business, cultural, and life experiences complement their own, and add immeasurably to the classroom experience.

Curriculum

The learning is collaborative, and the teaching based on cases and examples from the technology and biotechnology sectors. Work is done on both an individual and team basis. Teamwork promotes both leading and following, learning to manage complementary skills and diverse backgrounds to develop creative solutions to complex problems.

Who

This program is best suited for those wishing to transition from scientific or technical roles or, as managers, signal their readiness for additional responsibilities. While the minimum work experience is four years, our students generally have approximately nine years of experience in the sector and are around 32 years of age.

When

Part-time classes start in September and finish in 24 months. Classes are Monday and Wednesday evenings, from 6:00 pm until 9:30 pm (subject to change). Students will be required to take the first week off of work for their first intensive course. Further, there may be one additional intensive course scheduled each semester which will include full-day sessions.

Where

All classes take place at the Segal Graduate School of Business, 500 Granville Street, in the heart of Vancouver’s business district.
