The first of its kind in Canada, SFU Beedie’s part-time, 24-month Management of Technology (MOT) MBA is rigorous business training designed specifically for tech. The curriculum is shaped by the needs of the technology sector, for the needs of the technology sector.
You’ll get firsthand industry experience and build a deep network of industry leaders. Ultimately, you’ll learn how to use technology to drive business—and vice versa.
The MOT MBA is designed for working industry professionals who work in science and technology fields, within other functional areas in tech companies, or have relevant previous experience.
The part-time format, spread over 24 months, means you don’t need to step away from your career. Attend classes in downtown Vancouver two evenings a week, plus on occasional weekends.
