Why Take the MOT?
Science and innovation have taken you this far, but what's your next move? You understand scientific data or how to engineer an exciting new product, but do you know its profit potential or its market acceptance? If you want to understand how to get from design concept to the bottom line, you need to master the fundamentals and the language of business.
You want to command the attention of CEOs, investors, clients and others who may not share your technology background. You want to prepare well-researched, persuasive business plans and build solid business cases. You want to broaden your horizons beyond your own professional field to increase your expertise. The MOT MBA prepares you for all this.
While an MBA will give you the general business fundamentals, the MOT MBA provides a rigorous curriculum of business and management education within the framework of technology/biotechnology organizations. These sectors are built on innovation. So to be effective as a manager on the technology side or the business side of the firm, you need to understand finance, strategy, marketing as they are practiced in technology or biotechnology-driven companies. The management education and skills you acquire will relate directly to your field, and will tackle the issues and constraints you face today, tomorrow and into the future. In addition, you will learn from your peers in the industry as you tackle common problems and discover fresh perspectives.
