What Will I Learn?
The MOT MBA program has been designed specifically for people who have engineering, technology, scientific or other undergraduate degrees and does not require a Business undergraduate degree. Count on seven hours a week of class time, and roughly double that for projects and assignments each week, although it will vary by course. Most students spend about 20 - 25 hours per week in class and doing course work.
Great science and great technology alone do not ensure commercial success. With a foundation in business knowledge and language, students become versed in leading management thinking and practice from around the globe. MOT MBA faculty are among the top researchers in their fields and well respected internationally. They bring careers in industry and extensive teaching credentials to the classroom, and bring theory to life.
Applying what is learned is a big part of the MOT MBA program. Most classes use case analysis and discussion about real businesses to apply theory to a corporate example with which all students become familiar. Sample activities include developing a business plan for a new venture (Bus 754 & 764), conducting an Innovation Process Audit (Bus 750), a project management plan (Bus 762), creating a requirements document (Bus 774), examining a technology life cycle case study (Bus 754), preparing a strategic analysis (Bus 752) and looking at the redesign of an organization's process (Bus 758)
