Creativity and innovation defines the intersection of entrepreneurship and technology. If that appeals to you, consider a major in entrepreneurship or technology management. The Department of Entrepreneurship and Technology Management offers a portfolio of courses and skilled faculty focused on managing in today’s rapidly changing world.
Through our academic programs we transform students from diverse academic disciplines into:
- Project managers who lead teams of professionals to plan and execute projects and programs that increase the value of the firm,
- Technology leaders who recognize opportunities, and then harness the resources needed to create sustainable solutions, and
- Entrepreneurs who unleash their creativity to share in the rewards of innovation.
Undergraduates can specialize in global, social or technology entrepreneurship through our bachelor’s in business administration degree in entrepreneurship. Students gain both academic and experiential experience in this field through unique programs such as the $100K Student Technology Venture Competition.
Since its inception in 2007, 650 undergraduate students from business, engineering and science disciplines have participated in the competition, 85 company ideas were formed and 12 patent applications have been filed. Sponsored by The Center for Innovation and Technology Entrepreneurship (CITE), the students have access to mentors and viable product ideas that can be brought to market through UTSA’s incubator program.
At the graduate level, the management of technology program offers professionals in scientific, engineering or other technology-based disciplines the management skills necessary to meet the world-wide demand for managers who can bring advances in technology to the marketplace in the form of innovative products and services.
Degree programs include a master’s degree in the management of technology, an MBA with concentrations in management of technology, project management or entrepreneurship and a graduate certificate in technology entrepreneurship and management. In addition to graduate students from the College of Business, the courses draw students from disciplines such as biotechnology, engineering and physics.
Whether you want to start your own company, manage scientific or engineering projects or stimulate innovative and creative thinking in your professional domain, I invite you to explore our programs. Interesting and challenging times are ahead.
