This unique program has been designed to prepare high potential technology industry professionals to handle the business problems faced by their companies.

The first of its kind in Canada, and developed in partnership with industry leaders, the MOT MBA has a strongly applied approach. Every case study, every assignment, every project, in every class, addresses business decisions in technology companies. To accommodate working students, our MOT is structured as a part-time commitment. This in-depth, stimulating experience will be completed in just 24 months. When you graduate, you’ll be ready to take that next step toward fulfilling your leadership potential.

This is an MBA, at the end of the day you’ll have this cross-functional credential that will not further pigeon-hole you as a technical expert, but instead allow you to be a better, well-rounded leader in technology and beyond. 

While our MOT curriculum moves quickly, the workload is intended to be manageable for someone who is also working at a demanding full-time job. Beginning in September, classes are two evenings
a week (Mondays and Wednesdays) with one or two additional 3-day intensive classes per semester.

Class sizes are small to encourage participation, discussion and direct feedback from instructors and classmates in your cohort. Working in teams on group projects and assignments, students benefit from the knowledge and experience of classmates from a variety of tech sectors and functional roles.


Cases and projects bring leading edge business theory to life. Cases are descriptions of real business scenarios that put you in the role of the decision maker. Assignments and class discussions mirror the challenging situations students encounter in technology firms. This enables you to apply what you learn to your own working life. Professors orchestrate the classroom experience to build on the
expertise of the students in the room. Team-work brings together complementary skills and diverse backgrounds to develop creative solutions to complex problems.

Students are brought together in the first week of September for a five-day orientation and immersion. This includes the course, “Leadership for the Technology - Driven Enterprise.” This three-day workshop creates a framework for understanding effective leadership in technology firms. During the orientation week, students are also introduced to our career management program.


Throughout the program, intensives are scheduled to cover topics of particular relevance to technology leaders and managers. Often featuring guest speakers from industry, subjects include areas such as negotiation, ethics and managing relationships in the organization. Career development workshops are scheduled throughout the program.
