As our world becomes more and more technologically driven, technology managers are needed now more than ever.
Technology managers make companies more competitive by incorporating technology into different business models – and the skills they need to do this job are considerable. They have to combine personnel and project management skills with a solid understanding of the changing world of technology.
There’s no doubt that this is a growing field, as well as an exciting one. The best part? SFU’s Beedie School of Business is making it easier for you to become a part of it.
The school is hosting an information session on November 9 for its Management of Technology MBA which is a two-year, part-time graduate program. This program allows students to learn theory in small groups, and then apply what they learned to practical cases based on real issues faced by companies.
The event will feature a mini version of one of these practical cases, taught by one of the program’s faculty members. Alumni, faculty, and admissions officers will be on hand to answer questions as well as representatives from the Career Management Centre.
The information session will also talk about SFU’s Graduate Diploma in Business Administration. This online program gives students the business basics, allowing them to move towards their career goals by upgrading their skills or creating a stepping stone to an MBA. People interested in this can register for an online interactive information session on November 3 to experience a mini class.
The information session on November 9 is free and interested participants can register online.
When: November 9, 6 to 7:30 pm
Where: Segal Graduate School, Room 2300, 500 Granville Street
